It's a great chill out/reading room, has a balcony overlooking the side wildlife area, and at certain parts of the day is used for lectures/classes/talks, etc.
Thanks!

I know exactly where you're talking about now! Can't believe I missed it!

Savannah View from Value Studio room at Jambo House, around 3 AM:



Standard view from a Studio at Kidani Village (no fancy view, but still liked it!):

Brandis,
Thanks for the standard Kidani view. Was nervous not booking Jambo as that seemed to be more of a pool vs. parking lot view. Glad to see the parking lot view is quite nice too!!

What you see on my picture is only the short term parking for check-in. The regular parking ist mostly underneath the hotel as well as some oversize parking in front of the buildings. But from the second floor upwards, you would have to look straight down to see it, otherwise its more of an open view as you can see it in my picture.

Closer to Jambo House, there is also a CM parking lot, which is about 4 rows or so deep, if you are farther away from the lobby in that direction, you might see some of it but it is still not as big as the main parking for Jambo House.

Just come across this thread. Great pics everyone.We stayed there for our first time last year only ever dreamt of staying there till I discovered renting points. We are now staying another 5 nights in november in Kidani tagged on to the end of our cruise and OKW.
We had a savannah view last time in a studio and it was lovely.Giraffes and zebras every morning. This time we are having a one bedroom and as we are not planning on being in the room much we booked just a standard room. Glad to see the car park view is ok.Just asked for a room near the lobby on high floor as mom disabled.
I will upload some pics later from our last trip.
