Animals at Animal Kingdom Lodge

Animals at Animal Kingdom Lodge

It doesnt matter if  you are staying in a Savannah View room view or just looking from the viewing decks there are lots of animals to be seen at Jambo House and Kidani Village

Animal Kingdom Lodge is one of the most unique hotels in all of Walt Disney World. Split into two building, Jambo House and Kidani Village, the hotel features four savannas. Over 200 animals and birds call these savannas home.

If you are lucky enough to be staying in a savanna view room at the hotel you will get to see some of the animal from your personal balcony. Waking up to a giraffe outside your window never gets old!

If you dont have a savanna room view or are not staying at the hotel then dont worry you can still see the animals. Through out the hotel there are several viewing areas and platforms.

Now onto some of the animals you may get to see.




I had done loads of research about the lodge and Kidani Village before we booked and somehow completely missed that their are flamingos. Hidden away at the back of the pool at Jambo House.

Pink birds – whats not to love? I didnt take my camera to the pool so I didnt get a picture of my own so this one is from trip advisor.

I mentioned these wee guys on my trip report on day 2 here. They live in Kidani Village – if you head down to Sanaa and head left there is a seating area and they live by the window here. You can also see them from outside but we found we could get a better look from inside.


Again the Ostrich lives out at Kidani Village on the Savannah.They are so funny looking.

    Waking up to giraffes and zebras outside our room is still one of my favorite Disney World memories 10 years later!

    We stayed a long time ago, and being able to see the animals from our room was amazing! We’re going back this year and staying here again, only this time its my husband with me (who has never stayed in the Bubble) and we don’t have a Savannah view. But I figure it will still be awesome to be able to see them from the lookout areas.
