1st time staying AK Jambo House - Rroom location suggestion?

Was able to purchase a friend's 90 points for only $500 and was able to get a 5 night stay, and will be in a Deluxe Studio-Standard View.

Can anyone offer some suggestions on a good room location?

Also, how far of a walk is it between Jambo and Kidani and are the buses usually full by the time they pickup at Jambo?

Thanks!!

If you plan on using the pool, I would suggest requesting a pool view location. A plus from my review of the floor plan is you don't have the possibility for a super long walk from the lobby to your room.

The walk between Jambo and kidani is about 10-15 minutes, depending on your pace. There is also a shuttle van that just runs between the two lobbies all day.

You will be on the fifth floor of Jambo House and probably a pool view. You might also get a partial savanna view.

I would ask for a room close to the lobby. If not, you could end up with a long walk to and from the busses. If you have little ones this is the biggest reason, It can become a long tiresome walk if you are at either end.

5010.. close to the lobby and it is a pool view, but if you put "near room 5010" you will be right in the Giraffe wing and probably a nice view
