    Can you tell me where the DVC rooms are located. I looked at the map and they appear to be in the main lobby. I am confused do these rooms look out on the Pool area from the Main Lobby? I have never been to AKL so I cannot got a grasp of the Map... :)

    If you look on the outer white part it tells you what you are looking at. For example 5313 is overlooking Arusha savannah, 5426 overlooks the pool, 5135 overlooks the front entrance. See?

    DVC is only on 5th and 6th floor (concierge) so the room that are by the lobby are actually above it. Does that help? The door to the room maybe facing the lobby(but 5 floors up) but looking out on the balcony you will see the pool if that is the view you have reserved.

    The opening ceiling in the lobby is 5 stories high.

    There are no DVC villas on the fourth floor. Just the fifth and sixth at Jambo House. On the sixth floor there are only five two bedroom lockoffs.

    I am still confused.. sorry. Looking at the map I posted... someone said that 2 rooms overlook the parking lot are Standard View numbers 5135? Are ALL the standard view rooms DVC lock off's on floor 4? 5? 6? or all three.

    Where are the VALUE rooms located. I am trying to decide on if to keep my waitlist for Value.

    Thanks in advance! :)

    Sorry if I was confusing. That map you posted was of the fifth floor so I was just giving examples of what those room numbers would be overlooking.... I picked the blue one-bedrooms because they were easier to read. I didn't realize what you were trying to figure out. But if you are now talking value studio villa at Jambo I think the views vary by location. Parking lot, pool, savannah, etc. I bet someone here will know more about exactly where those rooms are located. Looking at your map I can't tell which studios are value. I know they are the smaller ones because that's what makes them different from regular studios. They are value because of their size not their location. Good luck! :)

    Yes, sixth floor is all concierge and you have an elevator key that gets you up there.

    Yes, those are the Concierge villas. All the two bedrooms at Jambo House are lockoffs. There are no dedicated two bedrooms there.

    And, yes, the value villas are value because they are about three feet shorter and they do not have the extra sleeper chair in the one and two bedroom villas. They are scattered around like TigrLvsPooh says.

    I think I read somewhere that half of all the value villas are savannah view. So that's decent odds.

    We are in the Standard View Lock Off 2 bedroom. I am waitlisted for a 2 bedroom Value but if the Standard View Lock off 2 bedroom guarantees a Pool View then I might take off my Waitlist IF the Value views are to scattered to know where you will be.

    All of the value villas are located on either Giraffe or Ostrich trail, with a pool, parking lot or savannah view. We stayed in a two bedroom value and it was plenty of room for 4 adults and 2 children. I had requested a pool view but we were given a savannah view and it was very nice. I liked that it was at the front of the building and very easy to get to lobby, pool and bus stop from this area.

    DVC doesn't allow requests for type of view for the value villas. You get what you get.

    Yes, you do get what you get, but we made a request and it was noted on our confirmation, no guarantee but it doesn't hurt to mention it.

    Reports have come in that they will not longer allow you to request a view for a value.

    Don't forget to click and make the image larger it makes it much easier to read. The rooms over the entrance that are not colored are not DVC accomidations but AKL. All standard view at Jambo has a pool view.

    Values 40% savannah, 40% pool and 20%parking lot.

    New member trying to figure this out for an upcoming trip...

    savannah view rooms would be fifth floor only?
    concierge rooms would be floor 6 only (with no guarantee of view)?so if you booked CL room you would not be guaranteed to get a savannah view?

    Thanks for your help!

    No, villas in Jambo House are located on the fifth and sixth floors. There are five two bedroom lockoffs on the sixth floor - three are savanna view and two are pool view. But both views are blocked somewhat by the roof. But you get the concierge lounge and ability to book the Sunrise Safari (that costs extra). The villas on the fifth floor are standard (pool view and blocked savanna views), savanna view and value villas (parking lot, pool and savanna, but you cannot request a view with the value villas).

    If you don't own at AKV it is very difficult to get the concierge villas. They go quickly at 11 months out.
