Tucked into the Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Kidani Village, Sanaa, which means “Work of Art” in Swahili, is a beautiful restaurant serving a fusion of African and Indian cuisine made with authentic cooking methods like slow-roasting and tandoori oven cooking.
Although the food here is not your typical American fare, even picky eaters will find things they’ll enjoy on the menu.
While Sanaa is a table service restaurant serving lunch and dinner, the spot offers the Sanaa Kuamsha Breakfast in the mornings — a quick-service experience for which reservations are not required.
The best part: the view from the restaurant is of Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Sunset Savanna — enjoy the ever-changing scenery of some of the most beautiful African plains animals you’ve ever seen.
P.S. Don’t miss Sanaa’s Indian-style Bread Service, served with NINE different dipping accompaniments!

- We especially recommend dining here for lunch or an early dinner during the summer when the sun sets later. You can’t see the animals after dark. Request a window table for an even closer view of the beautiful animals outside.
- The restaurant is located in Kidani Village, which is about a quarter of a mile away from Animal Kingdom Lodge’s main building, Jambo House. To get there, either park at Jambo House and walk to Kidani Village via the pathway, or park right at Kidani Village. Ask at the guardhouse for directions.
- Sanaa offers Mobile Dine Check-In.
Famous Dishes: Indian-style bread service, Potjie-inspired (the guest’s choice of a meat or seafood curry plus one plant-based option and Basmati rice)
