Help (AKL)

Ok, we are going at the end of February, for 4 nights.
There are four of us 32,28,12 and 6.
We stayed a AOA last time, and were completely spoiled by all of the space, 2 bathrooms, and 2 seperate rooms to sleep in. (my dd (6) likes to sleep with the tv on)

HERE is the question.

Kidani village 1 bedroom suite standard view (so we can have the space) (note it will probably be too cold to use the pool) and we will be eating CS at the Mara probably once a day, so we will have to eat there or trek to our room.

OR

AKL Savannah view (or pool view if Savannah view isnt avail) Bunk bed room?? We are not planning on spending a ton of time in our room.


What do you think??

I myself would go for the 1 bedroom, just for the extra space, there is lots of areas around the lodge to relax and look at animals. Sounds like you wont spend to much time in your room anyways so when you are there it will be nice to have the extra space

We've stayed in both the AoA suites and an AKL pool view bunk bed room. If you're only staying 4 nights and not planning to spend much time in your room, I'd save the extra money, and go with a bunk bed room with the more convenient location. The bunk bed room was perfectly fine for us, and we liked being so close to the Mara.

Why not a standard view 1 br @ Jambo? You have extra room as w/ Kidani, but are in the same building as Mara.

We've never stayed at Kidani, but have stayed savanna view and pool view at AKL and my choice would be a BB room at AKL. A regular room will be plenty big, IMO, for the 4 of you, especially since you won't be spending a lot of time in the room. Plus, staying at AKL will put you in the same building as Mara, which will be very convenient for CS meals. Good luck with your decision.
