Overview
An entirely unique Disney experience just to the west of Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park. It's the thrill of staying at a wildlife reserve with animals grazing just beyond your balcony. Rejuvenate both body and spirit in luxurious surroundings while sharing the grandeur of the African wilderness. The beauty of the savannah, the rhythm of tribal drums, exquisite cuisine in lush settings and the lure of authentic African treasures all come together to celebrate the beauty and wonder of this vast and untamed continent.
 
Location: Situated within Disney's Animal Kingdom Resort Area; 22 km from the Orlando airport

Lovely Hotel - definitely worth paying for Savannah View!

Just returned from a two week stay at Animal Kingdom Lodge, Jambo House visiting in July for a family holiday. Our room was located on the 3rd third with a savannah view which was definitely worth the extra money! Waking up and eating breakfast to the view of giraffes and zebras made our holiday. Lots of activities going on at the hotel during the day and the pool was great to come back to after a busy day at the park, surprisingly it wasn't very busy and you could always stroll down and get a sun bed at 4pm!The hotel is very well connected with the disney transport system, however, this hotel is quite far away from most of the parks and sometimes you can wait a while for a bus back.The Mara was a good place to grab breakfast to take up to our room; it offered a range of pastries and a place to grab coffee but would never eat in as it is such a dismal place. There are much better quick service meals in Disney Springs with great views for a cheaper evening meal. Would recommend going to the Sanaa restaurant as the food and staff were lovely.Overall a great hotel with excellent views but would stay at a hotel closer to Magic Kingdom and Disney Springs.

My cousin and I came down to Orlando for our vacation this year and decided to do Disney. This was definately the way to it. Such an amazing experience. Clean. Neat. The whole staff was professional and friendly. And taught us a lot about the locale. We will defienatley be back for our next Disney experience. Thank you.

Family Vacay

We stayed at Jambo house from June 27th-July 3rd. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay here. Our room was on the 3rd floor, which is where the lobby is at, and we were just down the hall! We had the Savannah room, which was nice. Animals were not always out. The room was good, thought where the toilet and tub are could've been bigger. One problem I had was i was getting bit at night by something. So of course I freaked out- but I was the only one getting bit. I asked for the sheets to be changed, which they did. If you go to Disney I recommend doing the Dining Plan! So much food, that you actually get tired of food! Also, the bus service was pretty good while we were there. I mean, it is Disney- you wait everywhere.... The wait wasn't outrageous for us, thankfully! I liked being away close to Animal Kingdom and not the other Parks! :)

Amazing hotel and experience.

Hotel: Jambi house . beautiful. Not the typical Disney! Cannot fault the maid service or any members of staff. Savannah room: seen lots and lots of animals we stayed in room 3364 and couldn't fault the view. Fun fact I noticed ... spot mickey Mouses head on the carpets in the corridors to rooms ! Lobby: plenty of seating. A nice fire pit on the right hand side. A shop on the right as you walk in where you are able to buy gifts, sweets and even pandora charms. Room: not a massive room but then it's for sleeping in right !? 2 good size double beds, fridge, coffee making facilities, balcony, tv with Disney junior on ect for the kids, fan on the ceiling as well as air con. Bottled Water provided daily. Bathroom as bath with over head shower. Towels nice and fluffy! Swimming pool: beautiful big swimming pool with a nice slide. Ample amount of sun beds and free towels. Food: Boma: one word AMAZING!! We had breakfast here twice ! You must try the jungle juice it is yummy !! Good selection of food-sausages, bacon, eggs, Mickey and lion waffles, doughnuts, fruit, pastries and so on. Couldn't fault it. Small restaurant by pool think it was called Mara - provided chips, pizzas, burgers etc throughout the day until about 1am. There was also fridges with different drinks and snacks in too. Wdw transport: excellent travel time to animal kingdom only about 5 minutes! About 20 minutes to the other parks. Never had a problem with the transport. There is a tv screen where you wait informing you of when the bus is going to arrive for each park. Overall what an amazing stay we have had with our nearly four year old. I can't recommend it enough ! Beautiful hotel, grounds and animals. Hope this helps !

Stayed here for our wedding and loved it!

My husband and I stayed here for our wedding (that was held at the Wedding Pavilion at The Grand Floridian) last fall and had an amazing time. We stayed in a king bed pool view room and didn't regret not getting a savannah view. TIP: Far cheaper for the same room with a different view. Save some money and go see the animals from the lobby or the walking trails! Room was a decent size for Disney, bed was comfy, and the two of us had plenty of space for the 4 nights. Pros: The lobby of this hotel is not done justice in the pictures - it is truly spectacular. Sitting by the fire, finding hidden mickeys, and watching giraffes graze outside were all little things that added to the phenomenal time we had. Boma for breakfast is a must do! The pool was great, and the hot tubs were comfy. The landscaping and foliage was top notch and made for beautiful pictures. Service throughout our stay was great as always. We loved being welcomed home every night :-) Cons: I love duvets, but Disney has a weird sheet comforter system for their beds. I'm not a fan, and wish they would change it. I always need to order extra blankets for my bed. Stay here!
