Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort

We had a Savannah View Room

I put up lots of photos of the animals the lodge and the room.

 

 Photos of the view from our patio.  Lots of African animals. 

Looking to the right from the patio

Teri liked the side patio

 

Looking left from our patio

Evening view of the Savannah

One of the wild animals at the lodge 

Teri had to tell her mom about the hotel before we could do anything else

The staff put these on the beds and made animals out of towels for the bath.

Then she had to call Trisha.  You would think she had never seen a sink before.

Now she is calling to tell Janie it has an indoor bathroom.  WOW

Lobby of hotel

Looking up at ceiling in lobby = Huge 5 story Christmas tree

One of many setting areas.  This is about 2:00 in the morning or it would have been busy.

Authentic photos from Africa safaris during the 1800's and early 1900's.

So many artifacts - everywhere.  The lobby is a registered museum.

Just another tourist.  This guy always looked lost????

Outside View of Lobby

Outside Fire Pit, they had one inside also.

Corridor to our room.  Our room is the first one on the right.

Four windows and then our room.  It was just off lobby.

Even the doors are ornate.  This is all hand carved teak wood.

This is the front door - when you open it you are amazed with what is inside.

Actual African items all over the place, most are museum grade.

Open the door and this is what you see.  WOW

Outside the back entry doors looking in glass wall

Wood burning fire pit in the evening outside.  It was warm when the temp was about 60.

During the day they sing, drum, tell about Africa.  Almost everyone is from Africa working in the hotel.

Many artifacts in cases every where

Check in counter

 

Shields on ceiling in some areas

Lights in lobby are African shields with spears

We went up to about the 5th floor and looked down

I cant explain how beautiful this hotel is.  The photos just cant show it all.

Cable bridge 5 story up in the building from side to side.

How often do you see a lobby people actually use.  They do at this one.

More of the room

 

THE END  For today.
