Dining at Carnivore, Nairobi

On the outskirts of Nairobi, the unbeatable food and atmosphere of Carnivore provides you with an unforgettable dining experience. This is your chance to get your chops around all kinds of meat, from the familiar to the unusual – including crocodile and ostrich – spit roasted over a huge charcoal pit. Accompanied by an array of side dishes and sauces, the feeding frenzy continues until the guests signal their surrender, by lowering a white paper flag over a central tray. 

Paired with the house cocktail ‘Dawa’ (meaning medicine or magic potion in Swahili), delivered by a medicine man, any meat eater will think they are dreaming. Twice voted amongst the world’s 50 best restaurants, this is a dining experience to remember!


  • Unleash your inner animal with a huge meat-based feast, including ostrich, crocodile and camel

  • Enjoy the lush tropical garden setting

Let's talk
I grew up near the picturesque fishing village of Rye, in East Sussex. However, my heart has always been in Africa since I was a young girl. Having a South African father meant my love for the history and colour of this fantastic continent has been a prominent part of my life, and so getting to travel to seven different countries over the last few years has been a dream come true. One of my highlights was flying in the famous yellow bi-plane across Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya.
