Ha! :-). I'm afraid to do that because of the unpredictable weather! We always go in June into July, so there isn't a question : it WILL be HOT! Lol. Not sure WHAT to expect for January! :-)

I went and looked at the winter outlook and of course it should be taken with a grain of salt but they say January will be below average for temperature in FL. This probably means lower to mid60s for highs. Thats ok with me though, i prefer cooler weather just no rain please!

What type of room did you book at the AKL? If you don't mind, let me know what you thought of the resort. For our June trip, we booked the AKL with an Arusha view. It will not only be our first stay there, but our first time even stepping foot into the resort.

Just pool-view this time (would love to upgrade to savannah view, but it's not in the cards this time). And I'll definitely let you know! We ate at Boma in 2007, but haven't been back at all since, so definitely excited to actually stay there.

We're staying in Arusha view at the end of January...we've never been to the resort either so we're excited. I'll admit I'm a little nervous that my expectations are too high. I'm expecting to sit and watch all sorts of animals from our balcony but I'm worried we won't see as many as I think. We'll see!!

I stayed at AKL with a savannah view and it was great. Animals were always in sight.

Thanks for the reassurance! I almost downgraded to POFQ and decided to stay with AKL and my biggest worry is I'll be "let down." I'd hate to pay as much as we are paying and be disappointed. And for us the biggest disappointment would to not see many animals from our balcony.

But it's great to read the positive reviews on Trip Adivsor and other sites and get comments like yours!!

Right now, I'm just hoping to see Zebra and Giraffes As long as I see those, I will be happy.

My DH keeps calling it the "poopy" view, but from what I read you can't notice a smell at all. What did you think?
