    AKL is beautiful, especially the lobby at night. It is a bit out of the way but not a big deal if you don't mind bus rides.

    No comparison. ALK is amazing. The pool is amazing, views amazing, atmosphere amazing, rooms bigger. POR, is a moderate and you get what you pay for. If money is no object, i would go for AKL........

    This trip funds are little tight so we are staying at POP for 7 Nights starting next Friday.

    Have a great trip no matter where you stay..

    Well, we have made the switch from PORFQ to AKL! Thanks for all the feedback! We have decided to also go with the savanna view and requested Kudu trail view. We are super excited! Eights days and counting!

    You might want to request facing the Arusha Savanna. That savanna has the most animals.

    We've stayed at AKL 3 times and it's one of my favorites resorts!!

    Arusha savannah is the best for viewing animals all the time. You may want to request that instead. We had the best views of animals! It was awesome! You are going to love AKL!

    when we went to akl a few years ago, it was a fairly last-minute decision, as well. we switched from csr to akl. we were SO glad we did! we absolutely LOVED it there! have a great trip!
