So, what were they like? The rooms were top-notch accommodations. Clean and wonderful decor, with beds hard as rocks. The African theme is throughout and I just loved the wallpaper. The real treat that made the room more than worth the money was the view - the view of beautiful creatures walking the savannah. It was beyond amazing to see them in the morning. Quiet, calm, living their lives in harmony with the world around them.
I think if I hadn't already been spoiled by timeshare living, I'd try and find the money to stay there every time we visit. Amazing as the animals were, though, I was happy to get to our very roomy timeshare with the kitchen, laundry, and slightly more comfortable beds.
The lodge itself is not to be missed, regardless. It is a beautiful creation and well worth visiting even if you don't stay there. In addition, there are paths you can walk to get a view of the animals that I had the privilege of seeing off my balcony each morning.
This resort is a definite *must* do, if only for a couple of nights (we stayed four).

I recommend paying the extra money and getting a savannah view room. You get a private balcony where you look down on real, live African animals. The rooms are bright, large and comfortable. The bathrooms are gorgeous with granite countertops and tile floors. The beds were very comfortable and roomy.
The staff are typically Disney staff -- ready and willing to cater to your every whim and always with a friendly smile and attitude.
There are two authentic African restaurants you simply must try. One is modern and the other is traditional and served buffet/all-you-can-eat style.
The pool was large and had a waterslide. The spa was great and the massage was to die for! Plus they have kids activities which gives the adults a chance to pamper themselves in the spa.
