A safari-style eatery, Zafari Bar and Grill sits within the Chessington Safari Hotel in Chessington's World of Adventures Resort. Zafari serves African cuisine from the lively open kitchen.

A diverse selection from the Zafari menu foregrounds a host of international flavours. African influences include a classic Cape burger, or aromatically-spiced freshwater tilapia. For a flash of excitement, diners can choose a tasty skewer from the fire, or the Wanyama banquet is loaded with tasty meats and falafel. Tantalisingly tropical flavours feature for dessert, as well as rich, chocolate-filled options.

Littered with plush, animal-print upholstery and exotic plants, Zafari Chessington is a colourful retreat. Family-friendly Zafari offers a fun ambience, with a life-size giraffe grazing nearby, and jazzy animal murals. The ‘little Africa’ menu offers a fun selection just for kids.

Within the renowned Chessington Resort, Zafari restaurant sits within the popular Wanyama Village. Chessington South Rail Station is found 4 minutes’ drive away.

    If you like spicy food, then this is the place for you! However, trying to get them to understand i can't handle spices or salt for medical reasons was a nightmare at first but then once we had placed my order, the waiter returned a short time later to say the starter would not be suitable for me, so i cancelled my starter, then suddenly my main meal appeared (yes just mine) when my partner had not even had his starter, so i refused to take the main meal for obvious reasons, then i was seen to be the back guy as the chef and 3 of the staff stood pointing at me and all getting really angry, which made me uncomfortable so finally my partner's starter turned up and the chef stormed out and left for the night, so the rest of staff were giving me daggers all night, so we had our main meals and still not suitable for me, so i didn't eat it, i gave up, i find it surprising that a massive company like this cannot assist customers with certain requests, its not difficult or even allow their staff to treat their customers so badly with all the pointing at me and dirty looks i got. Wont be eating there again, i'm affraid!

    Poor sat down at 9 pm and ordered dinner.
    At 1030 the waitress came to our table to tells us the chef wasn't going to cook our dinner.
    Not a lot to say after that it's not even worth me marking it out of 5

    Nicely themed, but expensive and not very good value - food quality average at best
