Mamba Village - Mombasa
Mamba Village situated in Nyali ,mombasa , is the place to visit if you want to see crocodiles and ostriches close up, followed by a comprehensive tour of the rest of farm, and ends with the highlight of the day: a spectacular scene of blood-thirsty crocodiles fighting for food during feeding time. Spread over 30 acres, Mamba Village mainly attracts the local market. It has a man made lake with rather rickety boats and fairground equipment. There are also camel and horse rides and ostriches that you can feed. There is a rather sad lonley giraffe and an excellent collection of crocodiles who snap and leap about in a feeding frenzy when it's dinner time! There's also a collection of rabbits, guinea fowl and other animals that young children might enjoy looking at and stroking
Mamba Village Mombasa has a nice campsite with clean washrooms and a covered dining room with facilities that are perfect for a group of up to 80 children and 50 adults. Security in the Mamba Village campsite is as good as you can find in Nairobi with a perimeter fence, and guards.
There is no campsite shop, however, meals and drinks are available in the main building just about 50 metres away.Other Facilities at Mamba Village are a rather uninspiring art gallery, and a large restaurant selling Nyama Choma (roasted meat). The food is served at tables with umbrellas outside on the grassy lawns, or inside at tables set out in an African style interior. At weekends the place gets quite busy with a large number of local kenyans and overall Mamba Village is an interesting place which is great to visit with small children
