In April 2013, my family (3 kids) and I spent a week in a 1 bedroom unit/savannah view. The room is beautiful and the decoration is amazing. The lighting is very dark which my wife did not appreciate it. It has two bathrooms which is needed with a big family. The view of the animals was very impressive. We saw giraffes and zebras throughout different times of the day.
Our room had to be close to 1/3 a mile away from the lobby and even further to the bus stop. Needless to say we got our exercise in but we had to time ourselves if we had a reservation.
Transportation was excellent, staying at Kidani you get picked up first and dropped off first. Jambo house (way more crowded) is always second for the four parks. The drives were long because you are nowhere near any of the parks. Even Animal Kingdom takes a while.
When staying at Kidani you are in the middle of nowhere.
The pool area is very good and it has a decent slide.
The store is small but sufficient for a few small items. I wish they had a counter service restaurant there. There is one at Jambo House but that would be a 2 to 2 1/2 mile roundtrip walk.
Due to its far distance from the rest of WDW, I give this a very good rating.
