Animal Kingdom Lodge Dining Guide

The Mara

4. The Mara (Jambo House)

This is the quick-service dining option at Animal Kingdom Lodge serving guests from breakfast through late-night snacking!  At breakfast, guests can find traditional favorites, as well as a croissant breakfast sandwich, quinoa served with apples and other dried fruit, as well as a variety of grab-and-go snacks!  Lunch features a variety of sandwiches and burgers, as well as a selection of flatbreads (pepperoni, braai chicken, and mixed tomato), vegetarian falafel bites, and African potjie (a stew featuring beef, turkey, ham, rice, bread, and vegetables)!  Dinner has a separate menu with entrees ranging from slow-roasted barbecue ribs, rotisserie chicken, a barbecue pork sandwich, as well as options for the lunch menu.  If you return from the park late, you can grab a late-night snack of any of the flatbreads and variety of delicious desserts!

5. Maji Pool Bar (Kidani Village)

Guests needing a snack while relaxing at the pool at Kidani Village can find it and enjoy a pulled pork sandwich seasoned with Kenyan coffee, Caesar salad topped with tandoori chicken, a roast beef melt, roasted turkey, as well as traditional selections of an all-beef hot dog, warm pretzel, fruit cups, and chips.  Guests will also find specialty cocktails and unique drinks here to aid in refreshment!

6. Uzima Springs Pool Bar (Jambo House)

Located at the Uzima Springs Pool, this pool bar also serves a small selection of bar bites for guests to enjoy while relaxing in the pool!  In addition to standard options like a bacon cheeseburger and chicken nuggets, guests can also enjoy the Mara chicken salad, a grilled chicken Caesar salad, a pepperoni flatbread, a turkey and avocado club sandwich, as well as a variety of refreshing drinks and specialty cocktails!

Aside from being far off the beat and path, Animal Kingdom Lodge is great place to have a meal if you are looking for something truly new and unique.  If you aren’t a guest at the resort, you’ll want to build in some extra time to get to your meal, but also some time to look around the resort afterwards and scout out the animals that call the resort home!
