LIVE - Animal Kingdom Lodge and winging it! Day 7 It Is A Wrap


It was our last full day today and after a super late night we didn't wake up until 8am! We had zero park plans for the day and other than eating and a massage booked that was the full agenda!



We had booked the Boma buffet breakfast and it was really nice - pretty much everything you can think of and lovely and hot and fresh. The restaurant felt a lot more neat and tidy compared to yesterday's buffet - but there are no characters here



1st course and I even found English sausages! Makes a change from all those German ones of late :-)



And desert had to be naughty and nice!



Our friends were leaving this afternoon so we wanted to go hang out at the pool with them for a bit - they literally live 4 doors down from us at home and have become firm friends, we see them pretty much every week and it's great to have such great neighbors and friends all rolled into one!
Shades of Green is a pretty resort and of course I needed a little photo with the main man again!



Their room was overlooking the gold course and very pretty!



We all decided after they had checked out to come hang out at our hotel for a few hours and take more pictures



We had so many food credits left we went to the restaurant to do some switching up! You can exchange 1 quick service for 3 snacks... so 18 bags of sweets later (work treats sorted!) and 3 cakes for a little snack our credits with the exception of dinner tonight were all used up!



Wandering around the hotel and at every opportunity there is a hidden Mickey to find!



I had another massage booked and this time it was time to work on the knots! I went for tangerine uplifting and it was just as lovely as last time!
Fully relaxed we said goodbye to our friends and spent the next couple of hours in our room packing up and just generally doing not a lot!



Every day the cleaners stocked up our room with shampoo, conditioner, body wash, body lotion, after sun and mouth wash! These I love for our guest bathroom at home so I've got a great collection... to go with the cruise ship ones it's safe to say I am stocked up for a while now!



Tonight for our final meal we were at Sanni which was located at the hotel - just over in the other village



I had read that the bread selection was amazing - it isn't included in the dining plan and was $16 for the 5 breads and 9 dips :
Five Breads - Traditional Naan, Garlic-Ginger Naan, Spiced Naan, Onion Kucha, or Paneer Paratha. 9 Accompaniments - Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, Mango Chutney, Tomato-Date Jam, Tamarind Chutney, Coriander Chuntey, Garlic Pickle, Red Chile Sambal, Spicy Jalapeño-Lime Pickle.
It was so good!



For main course you can select the usual steak, fish or pick from the below ‘Potjie Inspired' menu:
Choose one from the Journey - Goan Seafood Curry, Butter Chicken, Braised Beef, or Spicy Durban Shrimp. Choose on from the Harvest - Chickpea Wat, Aloo Masala, Paneer Tikka, Lentil Dhal, or Cilantro-Coconut Vegetables. Served with scented Basmati Rice
I picked the butter chicken and paneer tikka



Jez had braised beef and Aloo masala



We saved a little bit of room for dessert (can you tell by now I'm copying this directly from the menu!). I had Caramel N'dizi which is Banana Financier with Caramelized Milk Chocolate Crémeux, Hazelnut Crunch, Banana-White Chocolate Chantilly, and Ginger Raspberries. Jez had African Triple Chocolate Mousse - Manjari 64% Dark Chocolate of Madagascar, Jivara Milk Chocolate, Ivoire White Chocolate, Chocolate Biscuit, and Strawberries



The food was extremely good and I'd highly recommend giving it a try if you are still thinking about restaurant choices - you have a view out over the savanna. Here are a few snaps of some animals up close












So that just about wraps up another short trip, we fly home at 7am tomorrow so home by lunchtime which is nice! I'm back to Germany on Monday for my next couple of weeks stint! That's the routine from now until Christmas!
In terms of future holiday plans - we are doing the Disney Magic - Spain, France & Portugal from Dover with Barcelona Stay in July next year with our friends from the UK and then thinking of maybe a week back here in Disney early December... I'm sure I will be doing a report next time...
To keep in touch until then I'm on Instagram as debi1976 and post of my shopping bargains, love of handbags and German adventures mainly including coffee and beer so be sure to say Hi! As usual thanks to everyone who has followed along and commented...Until next time Debs xxx
