Safari Park Hotel & Paradise Casino - Kenya

Nairobi is the throbbing capital city of Kenya: a booming, hot, non-stop chaos of bustling ebb and flow. At its heart sits the Safari Park Hotel - an oasis of calm and the best place for a game of blackjack in town.

Kenya’s colonial heritage is evident throughout the city. The famous Muthaiga Country Club is still ‘members only’ and a tie and jacket are compulsory. This casual elegance extends to the Safari Park where opulent, landscaped, gardens enclose a professionally run hotel and casino.

The Paradise Casino sits in the midst of the gardens, offering players the chance to enjoy blackjack, roulette, baccarat, and several other games in a glorious setting. There are also slots to enjoy, as well as a sports bar with screens to watch the latest action.

Entertainment comes in a variety of different guises. There is an elegant piano bar, as well as the Cats Club Discotheque for more up-tempo musical mores. The world-renowned Safari Cats Dancers and Acrobats are the in-house show when they are not busy touring the world.

Hungry and thirsty players are very well catered for with five speciality restaurants, including Japanese ‘Chiyo’, barbeque option Nyama Choma Ranch, and the Café Kigwa which serves food 24 hours.

If you are looking for some old school elegance and the chance to meet a red-faced ex-pat from another era, the tables of the Paradise Casino might be what you are looking for. There’s some big game to be had in Africa - go bag a winner.
