I keep saying this but those CL perks keep adding up. I didn't realize you had to b CL to do this.

Breakfast looked good, nice presentation.. Maybe they forgot to put the bagels out and left them in the back? Lol
Lol about the guide giving you his number and the weirdness comment..very nice of him to do that for sure.

The food pictures look great, bummer about the food. However the experience of the safari sounds amazing as it's so exclusive.

Great report. Not something someone prepping for gastric sleeve surgery should be reading but it all looked so good.

Wow the Sunrise Safari breakfast looks great! Looking forward to reading about the actual safari in your TR. I would love to do that, but I don't see a CL stay anytime in my near future. I want to do the safari just for that banana french toast! It speaks to me.

Great review of the safari! The food looks amazing! I try not to drool on the computer screen when I see the food photos.

I'm excited that we are leaving in a week but disappointed that we are still not going to Jiko after 7 trips.... oh well. Maybe next year!!

So I think I am going to cancel my WCC dinner on our arrival night for Territory Lounge... I'm thinking it looks much better! Also, we dined at Artist's Point and loved the menu....

We can't wait for Jiko! I tacked 2 nights onto our trip and we will be at Kidani -

Other than the stuffed french toast, that stuff looks a lot like the TH breakfast… Which means that I'll enjoy it all!

Kathy, that's right, you need to stay CL to do the Sunrise Safari. But any AKL lodge guest can book the Sunset (Wanyama) Safari. DH & I did that once (December 2010, I think) and loved it. Dinner is a special one at Jiko.

I'm so sorry the food wasn't as good as you were hoping. Disappointing about that French toast.

Look at you...Miss Popular with photos from the guide and the chef. I want to be you when I grow up.
Brenda - do you think some people might put cream cheese on a plain croissant? I wouldn't but 'ya never know I've also heard of mixing it in with scrambled eggs as you cook them but can't imagine adding it after the fact. Could there have been a basket of hidden toast somewhere (you know, near some hidden Mickey's)?

So I managed to fit Jiko into our October itinerary, based largely on your review. Thank you! We've eaten there many times before but you reminded me how much we love it.

A few more points in the "pro" column for Club Level. Late night desserts? Sunrise Safari? Sounds good to me. The breakfast looks good for what it was. I'm sure the real thrill was the safari itself; looking forward to hearing the details on your TR.

Don't you just love meeting CMs who love their jobs? Eddie sounds like a great CM. We will keep an eye out for him in the AK next month! Hope you take him up on the tour offer. We were blessed to be able to do a private evening safari/tour last year (not with Eddie but with other amazing CMs). I just love the AK/AKL!!

Totally random but I absolutely adore the top you were wearing for the sunrise safari. So pretty!!
