Some background... Trip is May 15-22 The first 4 nights we have dining plan (staying at POP), and the last 3 nights we don`t because of the split stay (staying at CBR). I`ve heard that when you eat at AKL that you can also go outside to view the animals, or perhaps you can see outside from the restaurant. I guess I`m not really sure which. I already have the ADRs that we want to do for the first part of our first. The second part of the trip will mainly be QS meals just to help keep the cost down. However, Im wondering about AKL. I wanted to check out the resort and thought it would be nice if we could see animals too. I was thinking about just eating a breakfast or lunch at Mara (instead of Boma or Sanaa). Any info or input would be great so I can figure things out on my end Thanks bunches!
