This deluxe resort property is located near Animal Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World. The African-inspired resort gives guests the opportunity to view grazing exotic wildlife outside their rooms and public areas within the resort. This leaves guests feeling as if they are staying on the African savanna.

There are two amazing pools on property. The Uzima Springs Pool faces the Uzima Savanna and features a zero-depth entry, along with a 67-foot-long waterslide. Families will enjoy making a splash at the Samawati Springs Pool. This is located just a short walk away at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Kidani Village. This family pool features an exciting 128-foot waterslide and zero-depth-entry. This pool area also includes Uwanja Camp, a water playground with 3 distinct zones for kids of all ages. Observation Station is for children 4 years of age and younger. Kids can climb through cargo crates, unscramble animal images and play in a bubbling geyser and shallow cistern pool. Children, ages 5 to 7, will enjoy playing at the Departure Zone, which includes a leaky water tower and clever African irises that squirt water.
