Tour description provided by Viator

Enjoy round-trip transportation by private vehicle to The Carnivore, one of Nairobi's most popular restaurants, for a meaty buffet lunch or dinner. Group size is kept small and the expansive buffet — slabs of grilled meats served on traditional Maasai sword skewers — is included in the outing cost.
Your eating adventure begins with a private vehicle pickup from your Nairobi City accommodation (or the airport) up to an hour before the noon start time of the lunch buffet or 5:30pm start time of the dinner buffet. The Carnivore is a 10-20 minute drive south of downtown Nairobi. At the restaurant, staff carve slabs of meat into sizzling cast iron plates over its giant charcoal grilling pit near the entrance. Meat is served using traditional Maasai swords skewers. The showy meal is an excellent complement to a holiday especially as a welcome or farewell dinner.A sample menu includes starter vegetables and soup; more than a dozen charcoal roasted meats including sausages and slabs of beef, chicken, lamb, exotic venison such as impala, gazelle, ostrich, giraffe, and occasionally crocodile; side dishes including mixed salad, rice salad, kidney beans, corn relish, coleslaw, and cucumber raita; as well as pie, cheesecake, fruit, ice creams, and coffee for dessert. Note that, while the restaurant is well known for its indulgent meat-filled menu, vegetarian meals are available and include a wide range of salads and vegetables with exotic spices.The experience is fun for the whole family and infant seats are available, if noted at the time of booking. The trip concludes approximately two hours later with transportation to the airport or your Nairobi city accommodation.
