Have rib eaters in your group? This spot offers spice rubbed Karubi ribs, with a side of a delicious African take on slaw. My husband, a rib connoisseur, loves these and feels they are a real treat when we are in the park. Don’t forget something delicious to wash it down with! Be adventurous and try one of the pairings!

Not hungry and just want a refreshment? Look no further! Here is the spot to get your alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks to help you beat the heat in Africa! We’d have to recommend the Leopard’s Eye which is Snow Leopard Vodka blended with kiwi and mango flavored Bibo. It is dangerously delicious and extremely refreshing!
