Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is one of those places that is chock full of things to explore and learn. So we’re giving you bite-size pieces, starting with Uzima Pool. This main feature pool at Jambo House was one of the first on Walt Disney World property to be built with a zero-depth entry point to mimic a real beach. Visiting the pool is always a great, relaxing way to spend some vacation time. But when you’re at Uzima, be on the lookout for special signage that teaches a bit about the circle of life.
Just beyond Uzima Springs pool bar is a singular post with four in-depth facts about how animals and plants depend on each other and their environment for survival. There are explanations of certain animal behaviors, such as how animals recycle in the wild and why they develop co-dependent relationships. You can also read about breeding seasons and how seeds travel miles and miles to be planted as food for future generations.
