“Hakuna Matata” will be your favorite phrase as you enjoy a day at one of the two pools located at this resort. Uzima Pool can be found at Jambo House and includes a waterslide, children’s wading pool and two whirlpool spas. Only a short walk away is the Samawati Springs Pool located at Kidani Village.
