Africa is a large venue, with seating for 120 inside and two huge separate outdoor areas, 100-150 in the Village and up to 400 in the Courtyard. Saturday is the big night for parties but Thursdays and Fridays increasingly attract functions. Licensed for 420 guests with an abundance of parking.

Our a la carte menu has a wide range of meals and prices, with an emphasis on substantial, wholesome food. We're not shy about serving protein! Steaks, ribs and burgers are a speciality. All meals are prepared from fresh, New Zealand ingredients by Head Chef Andy Chapman and his team. Most menu items are available to take away.

The Serengeti Room is for corporate meetings, seminars, private dining, stag dos, etc. Available free of charge to guests using our food and beverage facilities.

Africa is the home of country music in Auckland and Jamesray and Friends have been performing from Midday to 3pm every Sunday for 9 years. Great lunch experience!

Free use of pool tables by VIP card holders on Tuesday nights; Costume waitresses 5-7pm Thursdays; 2 Pool Tables; VIP member programme for discounts, loyalty points and special benefits.

We are proud to support Youthtown as the owner/operator of 18 gaming machines in a separate room.

Buffet Menu
Create a meal to suit your requirements, taste and budget from the options below or ask us to price something else. Buffets are presented in the private Serengeti Room, with carving/service by Africa staff.

Each price is a price per person for that item. Make your choices and add the prices, the total being the price per person for that meal combination. We will usually round down the resulting total price per person or otherwise add extra value to provide a cost effective package.

BBQ Menu

BBQ's are an ever-popular favourite for social dining throughout Africa and NZ. We make exclusive use of fresh NZ produce and an array of special marinades and basting sauces to produce excellent food quality.

BBQ's are cooked by an experienced chef in front of you, then served buffet style in the private Serengeti Room. Some popular combinations are listed provided below. Or, choose from the Buffet Pick'n Mix Menu.
