On the whole, the dining experience at Busch Gardens is a step down from that at its sister park, SeaWorld, in Orlando. While Crown Colony House, the sole full-service restaurant in the park (in the Egypt section) can't hold a candle to Sharks Underwater grill at SeaWorld, it has a few tasty dishes. The main draw here is the great view of the Serengeti Plain.
For more casual dining, I recommend the Desert Grill in Timbuktu, where you can be entertained in air-conditioned comfort while you dine, the Zambia Smokehouse for better than average barbecue amid the roars and screams of SheiKra in Stanleyville, and the outdoor Zagora Cafe in Morocco. And speaking of Morocco, I find it disappointing that Busch Gardens has not chosen to extend its African theme to its restaurant menus. I found myself wishing for something akin to the first-rate Moroccan restaurant at Epcot in Walt Disney World Resort. All the restaurants mentioned here are reviewed later in this chapter.
(An interesting note: No straws are served at any of the park’s restaurants or fast-food outlets in deference to the safety of the animals.)
