Samawati Springs Pool at Kidani Village

Posted by on Jun 13, 2011 | Comments Off

The newest pool at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is Samawati Springs, a zero-entry pool located at Kidani Village. Kidani Village is a DVC only area and the pool is exclusively used by DVC guests.

Samawati Springs is a 4,700 square foot pool of gorgeous, blue water. In fact, Samawati means azure (sky blue) in Swahili! Like the Uzima Springs pool, Samawati Springs is a zero-entry pool, which means you can walk right in! It’s great for children too as you don’t have to worry about jumping in or ladders!

The water slide at Samawati Springs is 128 feet long and both kids and adults will love it! If you’re looking to relax after all that action, there are two hot tubs for the adults!

The most unique feature of the Samawati Springs Pool is Camp Uwanja! Uwanja means “play area” in Swahili and that is exactly what Camp Uwanja is-a giant play area for the little ones!

When you enter the camp, just try dodging all the water coming at you! African masks, snakes and even flowers are all squirting water! There is a small, shallow pool and water?geysers?for the little ones to run through! Water cannons and buckets of water prove for a fun water fight for older kids! If the 128 foot long slide is too big for the kids, they will appreciate the smaller slides available for them.

Nearby is a playground for the kids to burn off even more energy! It features rope bridges and slides.

Finally, if you’re looking for some snacks or perhaps an adult beverage, visit the Maji Pool Bar. Maji means “water” in Swahili but it definitely serves more than just that!
