My DH had a burger there two years ago that made him sick, so this trip he ordered it well done & loved it!!! He said he recommends it.

If you like falafel, it is awesome there! =)

Loving my stay at AKL Kidani so far.

Ate breakfast at Boma's a few days ago - Loved it!!

Had Zebra domes a couple days ago - loved them!! Want to have some more!!

I find the studio rooms to be a little small with four people. And I do not like the beds. They lean and I feel like I am going to fall out. They feel like the bed is like this : ^, high in the middle low on the ends. Other than that the rooms are beautiful!! We also were given the room location right next to the lobby up a floor, very good location!!

Ate at Sanaa last night - was very good especially the bread service and the painted lemur drink...yummy!!

The pool area is beautiful and my kids love the pool slide and splash area.

I wish there was a QS but the Mara is good at Jambo house.

CM's here are really nice and helpful!

Watching the animals are awesome!!

I would definitely stay here again, just might upgrade to a one bedroom.

Is it warm enough to swim right now? Hoping it is in 20 days! (Where are you from? I don't take swimming temp advice from Canadians, New Englanders, or Great Lake area peeps! Lol)

Love Boma! Our breakfast there is our last day... Not sure we'll be able to hold off when we smell the yummy smells!

Does Mara have some regional foods, too? Hoping for some falafel, hummus, or good soups.

We were swimming last week & we're from NC. If the pool isn't warm enough the hot tubs will be for sure!

They have hummus in the cooler @ the Mara. We didn't try it, but it looked great!

DS 11 & I had the falafel pita for lunch twice. Loved it!!!

There are lots if unique options there for QS, even yummy Zebra Domes for dessert!!!

You could sneak in a quick nap after the safari.

There is a great map on www.allears.net
If you get bottom floor you'll have an easier walk to the Mara but not a great pool view. We always try to get higher floors for a better view/ less pool noise.

[QUOTE=TruBlu;47401716]You could sneak in a quick nap after the safari. ]

I'm not usually a napper, but I'm sure going to try! I'd hate to be tired and grumpy for my birthday dinner. I guess that would make me the beast rather than the beauty in that case.

Even if I can't nap, I'm planning on taking advantage of AKL and especially CL to relax for the day. Lounge around by the pool, watch animals from the balcony, hit up the CL for some snacks, etc. That's one of the reasons we splurged this trip - we just did a commando-style trip last Dec. while staying at POR, and decided to stay deluxe this time so we could relax. I'm soooo looking forward to it!
