I took a great of about 100 kids from our children's center for a fun day of rides, animals, and food. There's a lot to do, and something for the entire family. The food is good, but you really come here for the atmosphere!

If you want to have the best nyama choma on a sunday for late lunch and also enjoy a visit to the crocodile and ostrich farm then Mamba village is a place for you. We visit often and love the place. Fresh air and lots to do. Good for a family fun day out

Funny thing is many people do not know that this place has amazing accommodation. They have rooms and also tented camp which is just fabulous. But the management is terrible. There is no information about this place unless you know what you are looking for. The service is not good which is sad because the staff is so nice. We... More

Nice photographs! We then... More

The restaurant service was ridiculously slow. We all ordered fast food and we had to wait for over 1.5 hour. Paintball was fun though and the grounds were good for a family hangout.

The crocodiles seemed neglected an generally un-cared for in terms of their health and well being. These types of operations should be examined and subsequently shut down, in my opinion.

We started the day by visiting Elephant Orphanage and continued to Mamba Village for lunch. At the time we arrived (around noon), we were second family that was eating outside and waiter suggested that lunch menu (soup, salad, main course, dessert and coffee/tea) was only thing that they would be able to bring quickly. Around 2 p.m. we were getting... More

I liked the guides, they treated my clients well. We walked around listening to stories about the attractions in Mamba especially about the crocodiles and the ostriches.
