A hidden gem! Only open on weekends, this place is definitely worth the visit on your travels, especially to get the kids excited before a trip to Monarto Zoo. Highly recommend the iced tea and the scones were freshly baked. Cake of the day is a winner too.

What a fantastic African theme gallery/cafe. We came across this place on google map by accident and glad we dropped in. Had some samosa, a slice of carrot walnut cake and coffee, all were very nice. Many nice sculptures of African animals and photos of the cafe owners time in Africa. Genuine, kind and interesting people to chat with about this fascinating continent.

Open Sat & Sun 11-5. Oct- end of April

Quaint, intimate, hidden oasis, our  African themed gardens serves coffee, hot & cold drinks,  bites, and  alcohol.

Here, you can enjoy a coffee, scone or somosa, in the Safari Tent,  beer, wine or even a Gin in the Karibu Bar,  or just chill out in the wildlife gardens where we also enjoy a chat.  

We also accept weekday group bookings, so please ring if interested.    

Each season we open our home & gardens to the public as our way of raising money to support  Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya, who rescue, rehabilitate & reintegrate orphan elephants & Rhino back to the wild. 
We have traveled over Africa for 20 years, living with the Maasai in Kenya for much of that time. You can find our story in our main travel site
