Question about AKL ....
I've read so much info on AKL but I'm not sure what is current and what isn't.
So I'm turning to my Jambo friends.
We aren't able to stay CL so I'm not able to take any tours, correct?
DH isn't feeling good these days ( he has an autoimmune disease which is bugging him, but I know AKL will cheer him up!)

So, I'm guess I'm asking ......

Tours for non CL people yes or no?

thanks,
Cathy

Sunrise Safari is for CL only.

Wanyama (Sunset) Safari is for any AKL/AKV guests.

The Culinary Tour (offered daily at 3:45pm) is for ANYONE and it's FREE!!! Check-in at the Jiko podium. (The Culinary Tour should be posted on the Activities Board by Bell Services and by the Boma restrooms. )

It's a tour of Boma and Jiko, right before opening time! At Boma, they show you the different pods and explain some of the foods. They give you a sample of soup (there are 3 per night, IIRC - I know I always go for the Butternut Squash Soup or the Carrot-Ginger Soup!)

Last time we did the Culinary, we also each got a Zebra Dome!!!

Then they take you over to Jiko, where they explain the set-up of the restaurant and usually offer the group the bread/dip selections!

Worth your time? Heck yeah!!!!

Love akv!!!

We are DVC owners through SSR, but we have NEVER stayed there! Why You ask???


BECAUSE WE LOVE ANIMAL KINGDOM VILLAS TOO MUCH! We stayed there for the first time right after we bought into DVC, and have been hooked ever since! We REGRET not buying into AKV when we had the chance!

There isn't one negative thing I could say about this resort. It is beautiful, and my kids call it their "second home"

We will be there 10/6 to 10/14 in a one bedroom savannah view and CAN"T wait to be "welcomed home!"

Jambo everyone!

I just rented points to stay for 2 nights in February in a studio...I am SOOOO excited! We are staying a week in our 2 bedroom timeshare, then in a studio. I figured no more cooking for me - We are going to eat at Boma(first time, breakfast and dinner) and Jiko (second time - we loved it!) I was hoping we could soak up the resort as much as possible. We are in Jambo House in a "deluxe studio" savannah view. I cannot wait! Thank you for all the great info on this page, it has made me even more excited! Any must do's? Kids will be dd6 and ds3. What does Deluxe Studio mean? Where is it in the resort?

Next week she will have to switch to another "product". She gets her last dose of the antibiotics for the infection tomorrow and they will take out the pik line. She will be so happy about that, the darned thing catches on everything and is a real PITA.

It would be really nice if we could actually go on our F&W trip and she could take a shower on vacation without me having to bring along Saran Wrap and medical tape!
Alison this is great news. I am so pulling, praying and wishing for no wound problems for this trip.

Pool time was great too! Lots of activities and my son loved it.
I am so glad to hear you had a great time. Don is so wonderful...I have not met Emily yet. Sanaa became one of our new favorites on our last visit. Great food, service was super and the the view of the animals

Congratulations! You certainly deserve it and especially after doing the half marathon. I can picture you sitting in the hot tubs with a nice cold beverage watching the animals and just relaxing.

Elin I was so glad to see your post. I am not a beer drinker, but I think I will try one of the two types Laura (and everyone) talks about here on the DIS. I honestly don't remember what kind of wine they had except I do remember there were three and they were good. Not super great but certainly not box wine... Thank you Elin for the winery information.

Yep I am a wine drinker
