We stayed AKL in a DVC studio back in September. Here are some of the photos that I took if anyone would like to take a look. Just click on the picture below to see all of the photos. AKL is my favorite of the Deluxe resorts!

Savannah view 2nd floor

Here are some photos from my stay in May. I had a savannah view room on the Arusha savannah on the 2nd floor. I can't remember the room number.









These photos were from my balcony:

On our April trip, we have reservations for the first night for a DVC studio at AKL, then the rest at Beach Club, with the first night waitlisted there. Part of me almost hopes the waitlist doesn't come through even though it'll be a pain moving resorts, I'm anxious to try out staying at the AKL/AKV though I think I'll wait until the new building is done before booking an entire stay there. Plus I think I'd want a car the whole time if I was staying there.

Groucho - you will have to let me know how you like it if your waitlist does come through. I just booked 8 nights in a savannah view studio for June.

Well, if the waitlist comes through, we won't be at AKV at all, and with the trip a good five months away, I'd be surprised if it doesn't. But if it doesn't, that's OK too. I'll probably do a full trip report again even though we'll be there "only" 7 days.

Some from a while ago...

January 2006 we did a split stay at AKL and OKW. At AKL we had room 5030, which I believe would have been caught up in the conversion and would now be a DVC villa, which overlooked the pool but also had a limited view of the Uzima Savanna. All taken using my trusty 3.1 mp Canon Powershot S1 IS...

My personal favourite, taken in the morning before the kids were up from the balcony:


Same view with an added touch:


Shots of the Uzima Savannah from the balcony:




Shots of some animals on the Uzima Savannah
