Poor antelope!

Oh my gosh, I already can't sleep, it's nuts!! LOL - I think it's because it's our first time at BLT - and we're excited about that. We went over and toured it on the last trip and it's gorgeous, DS fell in love with it............ he's excited about being on the monorail, seeing the fireworks from the room AND top of the world - it's gonna be great - then for the last few days we move over to our beloved Kidani - we all neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed this vaca - and we're all really looking forward to it, plus our good friends are going too, so we get to spend some time with them, which will be wonderful.

BUT, I plan on tons of pics!!! So, be ready!!! LOL (OH and this is NOT a promise - but maybe a nice surprise, if he can get it to work out - DS is gonna try a live feed from BLT!!! - but, shhhhhh - I'm only gonna share the link with Jambo/Kidani peeps - IF he can do it!!

One bit of advice when requesting savannah rooms. We are renting points and have a savannah Arusha view room but we requested to be on the side by the pool area and Mara but its also the side that doesn't get morning sun or rarely see animals. I'm very sad that we hadn't just stayed on the other side of Arusha and also wish we had a lower floor. The villas are located on the 5th and 6th floors and unfortunately the tree tips block a lot of the view. I think I would request either sunset savannah next time it go to Kidanni. We were at beach club for 7 nights and only 3 nights here or I would of requested to change rooms. The rooms however are beautiful, more spacious then the beach club and our bed and linens also are better here! Just wanted to throw that bit if advice up.

That is similar to what I noticed at AKL. We were in a 2 Queens room with a Sunset Savannah view (4268). There never seemed to be many animals out there early in the morning. I would always see a few - even a zebra fight that was AWESOME!!!! But, it seems like they prep that area around 8ish in the morning & we had morning shade. We could see Kidani from our balcony & the animals tended to hang out over there in the sunshine early in the morning.

I bet it is the opposite in the summer heat. I bet they hang out in the shade, but that's just a guess.
