    My nephews 8 & 6 loved the Kidani pool activities that were offered. After participating they passed out bracelets and beads. We also like the campfire circle and I think they did some kind of craft in the lobby at Jambo House. There is a list of resort activates given to you when you check in. AKL is outstanding, wish I was going back this year.

    They have activities in the afternoon --- art activities---different stations. There is a huge medalion inside the front doors. You are going to walk over it many times. Well -- it is metal and has animals, trees, etc. on it and you can make rubbings. They give you paper, crayons, etc. and have someone show you what to do. Saw some great pictures being created by adults and children. There were other stations also.

    In the evening, they have african drum lessons starting in the gift shop and children each have a drum and follow african dressed man through the lobby beating the drums and then sit on the floor in a circle and learn some more. At Christmas they turned off the Christmas tree lights and had those children say magic words and beat the drums to get the lights to come back on.

    They have people at various times of the day in different places that tell you about their country and answer questions.

    There are more things and you can ask the conciegre for a list and times of things to do. It was a great time.

    From things I found online, Boma used to offer a free culinary tour. Not sure if they still do it or not but sounds like fun if they do! Enjoy your stay. I have always wanted to stay there. I think they also have nighttime viewing of the animals with special binoculars or glasses or something.
