Regarding the Savanna view, I think that is also where people's opinions will vary. First off, I always say if you have to break the bank to pay for the upgrade, then don't. I say the same thing about MK view at the CR, BW view at BWV/BWI, etc. But if it is within your price range, I think it is really incredible. BUT, maybe it is because we had the Arusha view at Jambo? I think Sunset at Jambo has less animals? We saw giraffes every day. Lots of them. Same with the zebra, gazelles, antelopes, etc. This was a normal pic from our stay in April. I will say the best viewing times started around 2 or 3 pm and ended at 6 or 7pm. If you're not in the room during those times, I would NOT even think of booking the Savanna view!!!

Loved the photo! Your viewing tips are helpful, I will keep them in mind.

What's wring with going for the best! You work hard you go for it girl! Hope you get all of the above plus a little bit of pixie dust more :-)

Nothing wrong with being chatty -- sorry about the "can't sleep" though. I am having issues with that lately myself.

Please don't ever hesitate to post. Once you've stayed at AKL/AKV, your information and experiences are as important as what we *old-timers* have to say!


Speaking of which: Kimmar - I REALLY want my Jambo Wildbunch Gang tag back! Would you please do whatever it takes (like finishing that ancient TR; buttering up to the Tag Fairy........... ) I also miss my Kansas and Little Green People tags!!!
