Kidani is a great stay IF you stay can get a room as close as possible to the lobby elevators AND you don't mind not seeing too much on one of the secondary savannas. I had a savanna view studio for one night as part of s split stay, and while happy with the room and hotel overall, was glad... More

I plan on staying at Jambo House again in the future. We stayed in a room with a full kitchen and washer/dryer. I would highly recommend this for anyone with kids. I ordered drinks, fruit and breakfast foods from gardengrocer.com so they would arrive on the same day we did. We did a meal plan which definitely makes meals easy... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa. The room was clean, well maintained and had no issues. Other than being a little dark, they were great. We could not get a savannah view but it turns out it was for the best. We still got to see plenty of smaller animals from our bedroom each and every morning we work... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kidani. We stayed in a one bedroom suite. The suite was spacious and well appointed. The kitchen had just what we needed and the 2 baths was really useful. Our balcony looked out over a savannah with giraffes, zebras, antelopes, and cranes. We even saw a native owl sweep down and catch a rabbit... More

I stayed here about a few months ago as a new DVC member and realized I never gave my review of this fantastic home away from home. How could I forget??

I stayed at Kidani Village with 14 family members in April of 2011. We stayed in two 2 bedroom villas and one studio. The resort was perfect for our extended family trip. The 2 bedroom villas offered plenty of space for multiple families to stay. The rooms were very clean upon check in. Bell Services was prompt and polite. Having... More

We stayed at Kidani for two nights during our most recent trip to the World. We usually stay at the Beach Club (our favorite) but wanted to give it a try. We had a studio with a view of the savannah for the four of us (two adults, two kids). When you arrive at the hotel, you are immediately transported... More

We are DVC members and have stayed at many of the DVC resorts. This is one of our favorites. The kitchen was high end along with the master bathroom. The second bathroom was a standard hotel bathroom - perfect for the kids. We loved watching the animals roaming the grounds. The pool was very cool. The hotel looked beautiful at... More

Was in love from the moment we stepped through the front door. Although the check in lines were rather long, it was organized and we were checking in before I knew it. The lobby is very rustic looking in a very classy themed way. As Jim checked us in he provided us with lots of information about the resort as... More
