Enter the exotic world of Africa at the Disney Animal Kingdom Lodge! The resort hosts an African savannah complete with wild animals. This Disney deluxe resort is located adjacent to Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park. The hotel features a truly unique atmosphere with a stunning lobby, excellent amenities and superb dining.
Animal Kingdom Lodge is comprised of two sections. The original building, Jambo House, was built in 2001. Jambo House has a beautiful atrium lobby that is reminiscent of the Wilderness Lodge lobby (it was designed by the same architect).
Animal Kingdom Lodge has 33 acres of property devoted to three different savannahs which can be viewed from the hotel rooms or public areas. The savannahs have more than 200 varieties of animals and birds, including almost 100 different types of grazing animals.. You can view giraffes, zebras, ostriches, gazelle, wildebeest, flamingo, cranes and storks, to name a few.
Jambo House is a very large six-story high building that contains the lobby, hotel rooms, a nice gift shop, restaurants and a lounge. The open soaring lobby features African artifacts and a beautiful large window that overlooks the savannah. Outside the lobby you will find a firepit and outdoor animal viewing areas.
In 2009, Disney opened Kidani Village about a half mile from Jambo House. Kidani Village contains Disney Vacation Club Animal Kingdom villas. Kidani Village has views of the savannah with live animals, a neat pool area and nice restaurant.
Some of the original guest rooms with Jambo house were also converted to Disney Vacation Club villas.
Animal Kingdom Lodge offers some of the best resort dining on Disney property.
The Animal Kingdom Lodge offers activities throughout the day for its guests:
Guests at Jambo House and Kidani Village can enjoy the amenities of both sections of the resort. Disney offers bus service to all areas from the Animal Kingdom Lodge.
