    We were in the absolute farthest room they have at Kidani last year. It was kind of funny to us, but I would probably request one close to the check in area if you don't want a hike.

    The only thing I would request is Sunset Savannah view, it's by far our favorite Savannah. We don't mind walking so we never make a 'close to the lobby' request, and we aren't particular about the floor because, for us, there are benefits to each floor.

    Enjoy! we love Kidani!

    I like "lower floor, close to the lobby" at Kidani for more eye level animal views.

    I was just there last month - first time. We were on the 5th floor, and I wondered if the 2nd or 3rd floor would have provided better viewing. 5th floor is above the tree-line, so further out into the savannah you're looking at the tree tops.

    Also, we were quite a way from the lobby. Parked by the Pumba elevator, for those familiar with the parking garage. It was quiet, but was not convenient to get to the lobby. That one is a toss-up; I can see pros and cons to either.

    We did enjoy our stay there.

    We were there for a week after Thanksgiving and requested "near the elevator". I called MS about a week out and they noted it on the reservation. We got it! Looking at the main map we were in the 2nd group of rooms on the right, one floor up from the lobby. I don't know the room number, but it was fantastic! There were no trees directly in front of our room which made for a great view. The walk to anywhere was convenient (2 minutes at most to the lobby). :lovestruc

    Happy 25th Anniversary!!! :cloud9:
