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.

    Restaurant served excellent food, view was amazing and the service was excellent. Favourite dish was the tandoori chicken skewers.

    Half rack of ribs was huge! Definitely couldn't do a full rack. Could have been hotter when served. But overall food was good. Staff very pleasant and accommodating but not very attentive. ie .. forgot about checking on you and dessert menu's clearing tables etc... but if you made a request they were very willing. Restaurant and bar setting is fab as are the views! Loved it !

    I did inform the restaurant prior to arrival that it was my daughters birthday. There seemed to be balloons on others table but not ours.

    Not bad - a few tweaks could make it great! To start with the good, there are some amazing views for a limited number of the window tables (we have never managed to secure one of these!) and the quality of the good is far better than the temple restaurant with plenty of non-fried options for kids. The bad, the prices are very high (but expected I suppose in a theme park restaurant) and the service is a bit haphazard with inexperienced staff.

    Had a lovely meal after a day in the theme park. Turned out we all (3)chose burgers all be it different ones but they were delicious. Using our Merlin Annual Pass gave us a good discount too. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful and it was our daughter's birthday so she kindly put the sparklers I had bought into the dessert my daughter chose and came singing to the table with 2 other members of staff. A lovely touch. Thank you. Also a great view of the Wanyama resort

    Food was lovely but a little bit too expensive. Could do with a few more choices on the menu.
