Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas – is an African lodge-style Resort boasting spacious accommodations that include kitchenettes/kitchens and multi-bedroom units. Featuring
over 30 species of wildlife that roam free amidst 4 lush, tropical savannas, the Villas offer
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 on the 5th and 6th floors in the main building—called the Jambo
House—of Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge
, which also includes Disney's Animal
Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village.

Set amidst an expansive wildlife preserve, the Resort features authentic African-inspired
architecture and the kraal African-village landscape design—a semi-circle design
popular in Africa which offers expansive views of the surrounding savannah and its
many animal inhabitants. Thatched ceilings, large beams, a woven ceiling, hand-
carved golden-tone furnishings, real African artifacts and a vast mud fireplace in
the main lobby surround you in the inimitable spirit of Africa.

Get up-close glimpses of the animals and a panoramic view of the sprawling grounds at
Arusha Rock, an elevated rock platform just outside the main lobby. Discover thousands
of indigenous African shrubs and grasses—including the most recognized canopy tree
of Africa, the copperpod—that paint a picture reminiscent of the unspoiled African grasslands.

Place and Boma - Flavors of Africa. Enjoy unique animal-themed programs for the
whole family and relax in the Uzima pool, an 11,000-square-foot zero-depth entry
