Expert Review

African touches infuse this luxury resort with the charm of the savannah. The welcoming lobby appears to have a thatched roof, while hand-carved furniture and authentic artifacts wow at every turn. Giraffes, zebras, and gazelles romp on 33-acres of grass and trees viewable from some common areas and most guest rooms. A “vacation club” villa complex on the same property offers birds-eye views from its restaurant Sanaa. All told, the Animal Kingdom Lodge features top-notch dining (Jiko and Boma are among WDW’s best bets), and the gift shop, with imported African specialties, holds an exceptional inventory of unusual goods.
