Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas at Kidani Village

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village is an African lodge-style Resort boasting accommodations that include kitchenettes/kitchens and multi-bedroom units.
Featuring over 30 species of wildlife that roam free amidst a 21-acre wildlife preserve
that includes lush, tropical savannas, Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village
offers you the unique opportunity to observe exotic animals in their natural habitat
from special viewing areas throughout the Resort – and from the balconies of select
Guest rooms.

The Villas are located at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, which also includes
Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas – Jambo House.

The lobby and the Villas of Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village extend
out and take the curlicue shape of a water buffalo's horns. This string of buildings
can also be viewed as a piece of native African jewelry, a "necklace" with Villas forming
the beads, garden-like walkways creating the "knots" in between, and the main lobby
building as the ornament or jewel at its center.

Inside, the Resort features authentic African-inspired architecture and decorations,
from hand-carved columns to intricate patterns that adorn the golden-tone furnishings.
Tall floor lamps allude to tall, swaying trees, and ornate hanging fixtures appear to
overflow with colorful flora and fauna. Thatched ceilings, a woven ceiling, real African
artifacts and an arching window in the main lobby revealing the adjacent savanna
surround you in the inimitable spirit of Africa.

Just outside the main building, sprawling wetlands border a picturesque landscape
where thousands of indigenous African shrubs and grasses paint a picture reminiscent
of the unspoiled grasslands of the Serengeti.

Dining and recreational options abound at the Villas. Savor authentic African cuisine
at 3 award-winning restaurants, Sanaa, and next door at Disney's Animal Kingdom -
Jambo House, Jiko – The Cooking Place and Boma -Flavors of Africa. Enjoy unique
animal-themed programs for the whole family and relax in Samawati Springs, a
4,700-square-foot, zero-depth entry pool with a 128-foot long slide.

Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village has been designated by the Florida
Green Lodging Program, recognizing the Resort's environmentally responsible practices.
