Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is an African lodge-style resort amidst a 43-acre
wildlife preserve. The Resort offers 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 savanna and its many animal inhabitants. Thatched
ceilings, large beams, 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.

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

Savor authentic African cuisine at the Resort's 2 award-winning restaurants, Jiko - The
Cooking Place and Boma - Flavors of Africa. Take a guided tour of the savanna led by
African wildlife specialists and relax in the Uzima pool, an 11,000-square-foot zero-
depth entry pool that offers a 67-foot-long slide. Offering all this and more, Disney's
Animal Kingdom Lodge is a wonderful choice for your Walt Disney World vacation.

Featuring over 30 species of wildlife that roam amidst 4 lush, tropical savannas,
