Chairs and tables are mostly wooden, contributing to a cosy and welcoming feel. The proprietor (a German Swiss) is much in evidence, circulating and chatting to everyone. There's fairly relaxing live music twice... More

Safari Inn Bar & Restaurant is a special treat especially when with jolly good friends! In Shanzu, Safari Inn is where you meet revellers from different backgrounds, locals and foreigners. They jostle like long time friends. The staff are used to this and are very accommodating. The nyama choma is, finger licking. If you need other foods, well the choice... More

If it wasn't for all the prostitutes and the horribly slow service then this place may be almost mediocre at best!!! My wife and I were in Kenya visiting a home that rescues orphaned/abandoned children. We went to this place one evening to give us context to why a home that provides love/education is important. WOW...did this place open our... More

I don't remember when was the last time I felt so welcome! The atmosphere is great, staff is friendly and polite. Real feel of Kenya and their warm and beautiful people. If you can, go on days when there is live music, it will just intesify the experience. Special regards to Ruth, nicest waiter I've ever met...
