On an upcoming vacation my family and I want to stay in the AKL Grand Villa.
I know there is Grand villas at Kidani and Jambo house. We have stayed at both resorts in the past but my questions is..........what resort has the better Grand Villa?
I also want to know how much animal traffic you get.....we will have 5 kids in our party and I want to make sure they get the full experience.
Feedback and/or photos would be greatly appreciated.

I stayed in Jambo's GV and can't compare it with Kidani's, but absolutely loved it. If your kids are old enough, there is a pool table in the unit. The master bath has a tv which we found the teenage girls watching while sitting in the tub in their bathing suits drinking soda out of the wine glasses; they enjoyed Jambo's GV. :cool1:

Having a dining table that actually sat 12 was very handy for our group.

Jambo's GV is one floor, which I liked. Try to look at some floor plans of the different units, that will be helpful. You may like the extra space for the kids on the second floor of Kidani.

We saw plenty of animals.

Loooooong walk to the unit! A little indoor golf cart would have been nice! :drive:

Reviews seem to indicate that both are great!

I also have only stayed in the Jambo GV's so I can't compare but here are a few pictures. GV #5284:
