Themed to capture the essence of an African Savannah Lodge, this Resort combines the architecture styles found in Disney's Wilderness Lodge and Disney's Grand Californian Resort, with the an art collection that would make most galleries envious.
As you enter the resort, you are overwhelmed by the massive 4 storey atrium. On the far side of the atrium, you notice a massive floor to ceiling window that overlooks one of the three savannahs at the Resort. Throughout the lobby, the craftsmanship and hard work of the resorts artisans are clearly evident. Eclectic furniture is intermixed with a variety of native African art to set a very unique theme. While very elegant, the lobby (like the rest of the resort), is very comfortable and inviting.
The resort boasts an 11,000 square foot pool (which also overlooks a savannah), and features a small water slide, a children's pool and 2 Jacuzzi's. More impressive is the size and location of the pool as it is located alongside the Uzima Savannah, where you will find a variety of animals including Giraffe, Impala and Kudu among others. In this area you will also find Zahanati, the Resorts full service spa and fitness center.
