Akl....amazing

We have been sitting on the balcony since 5:30 listening to the sound of a gentle rain, and the birds, and watching the animals slowly appear as the sun comes up. There are two giraffes standing under a tree watching us watch them. This is truely an amazing place to be!!

Glad you are loving the experience! I often wonder how AKL/AKV isn't the most popular resort on site! I love just relaxing on the balcony.

I really DO want to live there!
I circulate my paper clips at work so they all get used or I feel like they'd be sad if they didn't get a "turn".

Waking up and seeing the animals out the window is so surreal.
