My favorite resort to visit is Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. This Deluxe Resort is obviously located near Animal Kingdom. I was lucky enough to stay here one trip for 2 nights. That was most likely my first and last stay at AKL! But, I do love to return to this resort on each visit, if possible, to admire the views and eat great food!

Outside the lobby is the savannah. Here you can walk the trails and visit Arusha Rock to get elevated views of the animals and the grounds surrounding the lodge. You will see many animals, trees and plants native to Africa. At night, cast members are outside with night vision binoculars showing you the animals and sharing information. It's very interesting and educational!
There are three great table service restaurants at Animal Kingdom Lodge: Boma- Flavors of Africa and Jiko- The Cooking Place and Sanaa. Boma is a buffet style restaurant will a mix of French, Malaysian, Indian, Chinese and English foods. It has been described as "global fusion" style and resembles an African marketplace. Jiko is a nice restaurant that features foods with an African touch. You'll be able to find seafood, steak, chicken and vegetarian offerings. Sanaa, located in the Kidani Village, overlooks the savanna where you can watch the animals roaming as you eat! This menu features African-Indian foods.
