Sometimes people forget the restaurant and beautiful setting the restaurant offers and what a popular destination it has proved to be over the years for primary school kids, a photo shoot venue for weddings or family outings.
Located 13km away from the chaos of Nairobi, on Langata North Road, Mamba Village, boasts a decent restaurant worth visiting.
The indoor restaurant, with hand crafted furniture gives diners a feeling of rustic comfort. We opted for a table in the peaceful scenic gardens along the man-made lake.
We opted from the meat platter with its selection of beef nyama choma, lamb, chicken and sausages. The signature Croc’s beef burger – comprising of a juicy beef patty, cheese and salad in a bud – comes highly recommended by the wait staff.
Mamba Village Nairobi is also home to more than 70 Nile crocodiles. The animal is Africa’s largest crocodile weighting up to 730 kilogrammes and reaching six metres.
You can view the feeding of the huge reptiles every Sunday at 4 p.m in any of the five different crocodile pens.
There is also an ostrich park and an art gallery to keep the family entertained.
Mamba offers a wide range of activities for families, especially those with young ones, ranging from horse to camel riding, paint ball and boat rides.
The parents can catch some sports on the screens around the restaurant.
The spacious grounds at Mamba Village make it a common venue for events such as birthdays, garden parties and even weddings with catering and decorations often included in the package.
Mamba Village also offers its guests conference facilities at its Mokoyeti Resort. As for the food, be ready to spend an average of about Sh1,500 per person.
