I will have to look for the photos. I did something really dumb a couple months ago and deleted most all my photos off this computer. (I didn't mean to delete them, for sure! ) I have to go find the disc those pictures are on.

Pool view would be nice but just FYI...at Kidani they have the smoking area right outside the pool gate to the Rafiki elevator....if you have any smoke issues (or are worried that people might be out there late), something to consider.

But a nice view if you can get as CLOSE to the elevator as possible (the gate and area are sort of between the next beads) ....

I'm at Jambo so hope the smoking area won't be a problem. I don't know why I'm making such a big deal out of the view .... I've always loved every room I've ever had there. I guess I just thought a pool view would be a nice change.

Mara Bounty Platter

I hope this is the right place to post this silly question. I heard that the bounty platter at the mara can be customized so I was wondering if you wanted to just have little mickey waffles how many would you get on the bounty platter if customized that way? I figured posting here over the dining page because the AKL experts are all here! Is that weird...lol

I'm not sure if you can customize the bounty platter to just mickey waffles. A mickey waffle and bacon is $5.99. On the kid's menu a mickey waffle is $4.99.

We had a pool view room last year that I thought was the PERFECT location. It was on the Giraffe Trail - we were right by pool slide/ hot tub - LOVED the location. We had a beautiful view of the pool, but it was super quiet - 5 minute walk to the lobby and Mara.

4 weeks from today we will be checking in at Jambo!

I requested Zebra Trail...but honestly, it doesn't really matter. :-)

I agree - we decided not to put any room requests on our reservation. We are excited to see where we will end up. There are no bad pool view rooms. (i think!)

I have a pool view and request Giraffe trail. I REALLY hope that I don't get a roof view. I want to be on lobby level and the roof thing scares me

Hey everyone,



We did a Jambo resort day yesterday. Pool most of day, lunch at Mara (good bacon cheeseburgers with fixins bar), these guys above by Arusha Rock (they came basically right up to the fence), toasted some marshmallows by the pit, appetizers up in the club lunge, had dinner back again at Mara (excellent caesar salad with chicken and wife had the chef salad), and then we had these guys waitin for us back in the room.



We did the Sunrise Safari this morning, a lot of fun and definitely worth it for those staying club. Even Simba was up and awake, and we heard him roaring.



About seven rhinos came up to the vehicle to say hi.



Very much liking our stay here!

So awesome!! Thanks for sharing the pics!! You don't by chance have any of your room and/or view do you? :-)

Enjoy the rest of your magical time!

Will be staying at AKL for the first time in July 22 for 10 nights with my 2 boys ( ages 15 and 16) we have arusha bunk bed room.

My first question is ....it is worth it ? do you get a better animal view in the arusha or is the savanna good enough? I am also thinking of adding the club level but what are the advantages ? since my boys are teenagers ( their first solo trip since their father passed away) I want them to be busy with things to do ( specially their age type of activities)

We have the deluxe dining but I have no reservations for any restaurant ( will the club level take care of that for me once we are there?)

Thanks

Linnette
