I wanted to visit this place and have lunch early on in the planning; then I read "West With the Night" and Beryl Markham talks of landing here, the "club" and living in a cottage nearby. That was the 1930's and much has changed.

But, the club room at the Aero Club where the bar is, screams stories and more stories; legends and lies; drunken singing, carousing and hanger flying.

Of the burgers I tried in Africa, this as the best. Be sure and get a baseball cap too and one for any pilot you know.

went there for lunch with some fellow tourists and some local friends. The place is very nice and has great outdoor seating in a cute garden. Lots of kids where running around and climbing on the playground-like contraptions they had installed. Nice atmosphere, but the food was pretty boring. The menu consisted completely of Western food and the quality was just alright. You go there for the company and atmosphere, not for the meal.

Nice atmosphere and one gets to see the small planes close by as they land or take off. It has a garden & pool and peaceful ambiance except on weekends (especially Sundays) when families bring in kids to eat, swim & run around. The food & service is good here.
