    AKL is my FAVORITE Resort!!! Like mentioned above... You will be blown away when you walk into the lobby! It's beautiful! Not sure which room you booked, we stayed in a room with a view of Arusha savanna. My favorite thing to do each morning while the family was still asleep, fill my mug with coffee & sit on the balcony. You get a front row seat while the sun comes up over the savanna, & the animals begin to move about! I miss that...::yes:: We explored the Resort, & every where you turn you will find something new & interesting! My sons had their face painted as an activity one night, & they thought they were real African warriors! lol Also there are raised prints on the floor in the lobby.. I must have walked right over them a hundred times never really thinking about them. One day, I watched my son & a cast member rubbing crayon on paper laying on one of the raised spots, & he had a few nice keepsakes of diffrent animals. They have movies under the stars, marshmallow roasting, & tell stories around the campfire in the evening. Swimming, night animal viewing.. like mentioned above you will get an activity calendar when you check in. We did Boma for supper, we loved it. I want to try their breakfast next visit. Make sure you take some time to play around at the Resort. Also if you didn't book a savanna view room, not to worry. They have excelent viewing areas to see the animals. Have fun!!!

    Have stayed at nearly every WDW resort... AKL is my favorite. We stayed at AKL Kidani 1BR with savannah view 2 years ago and my DH and I LOVED it! Then last year in October we stayed at AOA. It was nice, but no comparison to AKL. I love the breakfast they serve at Boma and the views are spectacular! I couldn't wait to get up every morning and go out on the balcony to see what animals would be there. So jealous! Have a great stay!
