Share the adventure of a jungle safari in lush surroundings showcasing the grandeur of Africa. With many rooms overlooking the beautiful savannahs, grazing zebra, giraffes and gazelles can be seen roaming free in natural environments. The rhythm of tribal drums...the exquisite cuisine...the rich settings...and the lure of authentic African treasures all come together to celebrate the beauty and wonder of this vast and untamed continent. Three animal savannas are home to more than 200 mammals and birds representative of the African animal palette. Some examples are giraffe, zebra, Thomson's gazelle, ostrich, flamingo, African spoonbill, and sacred ibis.
