AKL Savannah vs Arusha

When I look at the packages on the Disney US site it give me the option of a Savannah room or for slightly more an Arusha Savannah room. What is the difference between these two options? Are there different animals or something?

Thanks

Arusha is the central savanna, you see it as you look out the back of the main lobby, sunset savanna is to the left and uzima savanna is to the right. There are different animals on each savanna, but anymore, generally the 'big' draws - giraffes and zebras are on all 3 (altho' uzima's zebras may now be replaced by donkeys - they move some of the animals around a bit.) To me, which savanna is less important than where on that savanna my room is (right above a waterhole being ideal, IMO) and how far up I am floor wise. I don't think it's worth it to pay more for Arusha view, but others do think so.
Here's the AKL picture thread - it'll give you a sense of various room views - just set aside a bit of time to browse through it.

And one thing I learned when I posted basically the same question while I was planning our trip is that standard club level will give you an Arusha view. I think it was about $50-$75 more a night over the regular Arusha room. But staying club level came with the regular club benefits and enabled us to book the Sunrise Savanna -- which people seem to love. Good luck!
