Go wild with these 15 safari theme party ideas

A table set for a children’s birthday party with giraffe and lion figurines as centerpieces, green and orange balloons, and party hats at each place setting.

July 29, 2023

Does your little explorer spend all their time slashing through the dense jungle in the backyard with their pretend machete? Or maybe their room looks like a wildlife refuge with all their ferocious stuffed safari animals. If either of those descriptions sounds like your child, then we’ve got the perfect birthday party theme for you.

With a safari theme birthday party , your mini adventurer is guaranteed to have a ferociously good time while also showing off their love for nature. Keep reading for more safari theme party ideas than there are zebras on the savannah.

Plan a journey to the wilderness… or to the backyard

You know that a safari theme birthday party would be perfect for your little animal lover—but what exactly does the party planning look like? There are a ton of exciting options to make this next birthday a special one, both at home or out in the wild. Here are some ideas to add a bit of adventure to your safari birthday party.

1. Visit a local zoo or wildlife center

Zookeepers actually make great party hosts, especially when they bring some of their furry (or scaled) friends for each guest to take a look at. Plus, they often have party rooms you can rent out where the explorers can enjoy safari snacks on-site.

2. Create a backyard safari

In many places, it’s possible to hire an exotic animal handler who will visit your home with their menagerie. Your little adventurer will never forget the birthday they hung out with a boa constrictor!

3. Plan a wild dress code

For your safari theme party idea, encourage guests to show up in animal masks, animal prints, or full-on costumes of their favorite beasts. 

Due to the *nature* of a safari theme birthday party, there’s a good chance that it includes some kind of outdoor element. But what if the weather isn’t cooperative? Hardy adventurers won’t let a little rain or snow stop them… but it might stop your birthday plans. Luckily, there are plenty of fun safari activities you can plan for indoors.

4. Put on a movie

There are so many fun animal movies to choose from. Might we suggest “Madagascar,” “The Lion King,” or “The Jungle Book”?

5. Play some games

Whether you’re playing Monkey in the Middle or Sleeping Lions , plan some fun kids’ birthday party games to have everyone feeling like a true party animal, indoors or out.

6. Create some safari crafts

With a few simple party supplies, you can set up a safari craft station where your young guests can make their own artistic safari animals.

Safari-themed party supplies are available at Paperless Post Party Shop .

Decorations for a wild safari party.

Whether you’re hosting at home or elsewhere, you’ll want the venue to give off serious jungle vibes for your safari-themed party. Seek out garlands and streamers that look like vines, and balloons in varying shades of greens and browns. Some other decoration options to consider include the following.

7. A fun garland to set the mood

Set the mood by inspiring guests to Party like an animal with this decorative garland , featuring an elephant wearing a party hat.

8. An animal-shaped pinata

Fill this cheeta party pinata from Paperless Post Party Shop with treats for the kids to enjoy.

9. Creature-shaped plates

From animal print plates to plates shaped like animals , themed plates help bring your safari theme to life.

10. Animal-inspired costumes

Get into the safari spirit with safari animal print party hats and lion masks .

11. Delightful safari-themed party favors

Thank your guests for a roarin’ good time by sending them home with safari print party bags filled with trinkets like temporary animal tattoos .

Feeding hungry safari explorers (aka partygoers)

Of course, a day spent exploring will leave your guests licking their chops and circling the birthday cake like it’s a water buffalo. So, what kind of food does one serve at a safari-themed birthday bash? Animals eat all kinds of things, but these explorers will probably have a taste for cakes and treats, above all else.

12. The birthday cake

Maybe it’s shaped like your child’s favorite jungle animal or decorated with a scene from the safari of their dreams. Also, some animal candles make the perfect topper. 

13. Cupcake decorating kit

For desserts that can double as an activity, have your guests decorate cupcakes with animal-themed toppers . 

14. Animal tail treats

We love this idea of decorating chocolate-covered pretzel rods to look like tiger tails!

15. Veggies… but shaped like a lion

For a healthy snack, you can make a safari-themed veggie tray by using a dip (like hummus or ranch) as a lion’s face and surrounding it with peppers and carrots to form a lion’s mane.

Wording for an adventurous invite

Once you’ve picked out your favorite safari-themed invites , it’s time to invite your child’s fellow adventurers with the perfect birthday invitations . If you’re more of a Tarzan than a Jane and have trouble choosing the right words, consider the below examples for your kids’ birthday invitations to get those creative juices flowing.

Go On a Wild Adventure with These Safari Theme Party Ideas

Safari theme party: jungle themed birthday cake

For a little explorer, there’s simply no better way to celebrate than a safari theme party. Whether you’re hosting a 1st birthday party or a birthday slumber party for tweens, it’s a theme that you can really bring to life with impressive decor, styling, and treats. 

If you’re ready to host one of the best safari or jungle theme party events of the year, we’re here to help. Get inspiration for your safari theme party with these decor, food, activity, and invitation ideas. 

10 Adventurous Safari Theme Party Ideas

Safari theme party: Sweet Lion Invitation

Design: Noonday Design

You can really go wild with a safari theme party and transform your space into something magical. Here are some of our favorite safari theme party ideas for decor, activities, food, favors, and more. 

1. Make It a Costume Party

If you’re inviting lots of wild ones along to your safari theme party, this is a must-have. Take your birthday party idea to the next level by turning it into a costume party.

Ask your party animals to join you dressed up as their favorite zoo animal or safari creature. Keep it open and let them choose their own costume, or ask people to take an everyday T-shirt and customize it with animal prints or designs to show off their creativity. 

2. Host a Safari-Themed Sleepover Party

We love a sleepover or slumber party , and it feels like this is one of those themes that’s perfect for it. Celebrate an animal birthday or safari get-together by asking your guests to stay overnight and stay up late.

Transform your living space or bedroom into a safari camp with beautifully styled mini tents, or ask people to bring along a sleeping bag for a more rustic feel. Add some themed party decor like balloon garlands, strings of faux leaves, or animal cutouts to really enhance the experience. 

3. Go Wild with Animal Print

What better excuse than a safari theme party to go a little over the top with animal print birthday party decorations? There’s something fun about layering plenty of prints together to create a zany, unique take on the jungle party theme. 

Look for tableware, table covers, party plates, and more safari theme party supplies that heavily feature animal print. Keep it all to one type — like leopard print — or mix in some zebra or giraffe print for a more eclectic look. 

4. Transform Your Space into a Jungle

This idea takes a little more planning and plenty of safari party supplies, but it’s well worth it for a special birthday or occasion. 

Layer hanging backdrops filled with palm leaves or tree-themed fabric, and hang earth-toned balloons, cutouts, or decorations from your ceiling. Invest in some color-changing bulbs to add a cozy glow or create a sunset effect, and add natural textiles and animal decorations to complete the look. 

5. Fill Your Party Venue with Jungle Safari Animals 

When it comes to planning the ultimate safari theme party, you can’t go wrong with plenty of jungle animals. Whether you fill the space with them, or hide them around as a fun mini game for the kids, it’s a super fun way to bring the theme to life. 

Use animal cutouts to create an adorable photo booth area, or feature tiny toy jungle animals as part of a themed centerpiece or table decoration. How and where you display the animals is up to you, but it wouldn’t be a safari theme party without them.

6. Host a Jungle Obstacle Course

Safari theme party: African Safari Invitation

Design: Claudia Owen

If you’re looking for something to tire out your wild ones, a jungle-themed obstacle course is a wonderfully interactive idea. It’s an ideal activity for kids of all ages, and you can tailor it to your theme, group, or event type. 

You can create your own obstacle course using everyday objects like couch cushions or hula hoops, or invest in an inflatable obstacle course for a big milestone birthday celebration. However you choose to do it, this is a great way to use up some of that energy ahead of cake time.

7. Set Up a DIY Crafting Area

Create a space where younger guests can relax (and still be creative) with a crafting area. Set up a party table somewhere away from the noise and offer your guests fun ways to engage in themed crafts. Download printable animal coloring pages, or find the instructions and materials for a DIY safari craft for kids . It’s a sweet way to offer a place to calm down while still having plenty of fun.

8. Splash Out on a Safari Theme Birthday Cake

If you’re putting on a safari theme party for a birthday celebration, you’ll need a cake that fits the occasion. Whether you opt for an expertly baked masterpiece or a homemade treasure with an adorable cake topper, it’s sure to be one of the guests’ highlights. 

You can take a jungle theme cake in a variety of directions. Choose a simple sponge cake and add a personalized cake topper, or go minimal and stylish with a giant palm leaf design. Think about what the guest of honor would love to see as you all sing “happy birthday.”

9. Give Your Birthday Buffet a Safari Theme Twist

Buffets are great for a kids’ birthday party because people can pick their favorite snacks and treats without too much going to waste. It’s perfect for those picky little eaters who just want to fill a plate with cheese, crackers, or cocktail sausages. 

To liven up your birthday buffet, give your foods a safari twist. These monkey sandwiches are adorable, and this giraffe cake dessert board is a gorgeous way to get your guests enjoying lots of fresh fruit. For snacks, a jungle safari trail mix is easy to make and works great as a sleepover midnight treat. 

10. Create Themed Party Favor Bags

Your safari theme party is turning out to be epic, so you’ll want party favors that live up to the same hype as your main event. Luckily, you can put together goodie bags that match this theme quickly, easily, and affordably. 

Choose a favor bag or box with a safari theme or animal print design, then add in a few classic items like stickers, candy, and bubbles. For an extra treat, send your guests home with a safari animal cupcake or a personalized animal pencil or coloring set.

Once you’ve decided on your safari theme direction, look for an invite that’s just as creative. Explore our birthday invitation designs to choose a template, personalize it, and send it on its way to your excited party guests.

Turning one year old is wild! That’s why “Wild One” is such a popular first birthday party theme. You can easily incorporate these same safari ideas into this milestone occasion, but you’re not going to want to forget these details.

Wild one smash cake safari themed birthday party idea

If you’ve seen kiddos go wild and destroy their gorgeous birthday cake, that’s exactly why smash cakes have become popular. Smash cakes are typically a smaller, homemade cake specially made for the guest of honor. After the proud parents help blow out the candle, let the one year old celebrate their special day with their own cake. It’s completely up to them if they play with it or eat it, but this way it saves plenty of birthday cake for the other guests to enjoy.

A first birthday only happens once, so you’re going to want to remember it forever. Hire a photographer to capture every detail: the decor, the cake, and of course all the smiling faces in attendance! Miss no photo opportunity with our helpful 1st birthday picture list for ideas.

Photo backdrop safari themed birthday party idea

You’re only going to be able to host a “wild one” themed birthday for your baby once, so make a photo backdrop for plenty of pictures. Create your own using a safari background, plush animals, and a big metallic “1” balloon. This backdrop will also act as a focal point in the party space.

In this Safari birthday party guide, we’ll take a walk on the wild side and show you how to organize an unforgettable safari expedition right in your backyard or living room!

Invite guests to come dressed as explorers, or provide safari vests, hats, and binoculars to get everyone in character for the adventure ahead.

Transform your space into a lush jungle or savannah:

  • Safari Base Camp : Set up a tent or create a canopy with green streamers to serve as the party’s base camp.
  • Animal Prints and Greenery : Use tablecloths and balloons in zebra, leopard, and giraffe prints. Accent with lots of green plants or paper leaves to mimic the dense foliage of the jungle.

  • Wildlife Education : Invite a wildlife educator or use educational videos to teach kids about different animals they might encounter on a safari.

Serve up treats that are both delicious and in theme:

  • Animal Sandwiches : Use animal-shaped cookie cutters for sandwiches, cookies, or fruit slices.
  • Jungle Juice : Green punch or smoothies served in safari-themed cups or with animal straw toppers.
  • Safari Snack Mix : A mix of dried fruits, nuts, and animal crackers to fuel the little explorers.

Create a centerpiece dessert that’s as wild as the party theme :

  • Safari Animal Cake : Decorate a cake with fondant animals, edible grass, and a waterhole for a stunning safari scene.
  • Jungle Cupcakes : Top cupcakes with animal print icing or small toy animals. Use green frosting to mimic grass or leaves.

Thank your little guests for joining the safari with themed party favors:

  • Explorer Kits : Small bags containing a magnifying glass, a mini flashlight, and an animal fact book.
  • Safari Survival Packs : Goodie bags with animal stickers, safari-themed pencils, and a compass.

Conclude the party with a group “animal call” contest or a storytelling session about a great safari adventure, allowing kids to use their imaginations to recount their own wild tales from the day.

A Safari birthday party is an extraordinary way to celebrate, filled with exploration, learning, and fun. This guide ensures that your little adventurer and their friends will have a roaring good time, creating memories that are as lasting as the wild itself. Here’s to a birthday celebration that’s truly an adventure of a lifetime!

Safari Birthday Party: Celebrating One Wild Child on a Budget!

a three-tier safari jungle animal birthday cake, each layer a different animal print: tiger stripes, giraffe spots, and zebra stripes

Ever dreamt of encountering a majestic lion on a heart-pounding African adventure? Chances are your little cub is more into chasing squirrels in the backyard.

But that doesn’t mean they can’t experience the thrill of a safari birthday party!

You’re on the hunt for ideas to throw a jungle-themed bash that’s both adorable and entertaining. Fear not, fellow party-planning parent! My son’s first birthday party was based on safari animals, and I’m sharing all my ideas.

This guide will be your jungle gym to all things roar-some, from decorations that’ll transport your venue to the savanna to DIY touches to keep you under budget (because mine was low ). I’ll even cover some food ideas that are fun and delicious (because let’s be honest, meltdowns from hangry lions are no fun for anyone).

These ideas will work for any wild animal theme, whether it’s a safari, the jungle, or the zoo!

DIY Safari Birthday Invitation

My son’s nursery was themed after jungle animals since he was born, but elephants were always prominently featured. He was gifted a giant plush elephant that he still loves, and he still has a plush elephant head hanging on his wall!

Naturally, I decided to feature an elephant on his invitation. I used a very, very old 6-inch-wide original Cricut machine to cut out the elephants, grass, leaves, and banners for the invitation.

I printed “Hugo is turning ONE!” on several pieces of white cardstock and trimmed them to size. The rest is also cardstock, with a black gel pen used to create faux stitching and add details to the leaves and grass.

The zebra print is patterned paper I found at Michael’s.

Venue & Decorations

There was no way I was hosting 40 guests at my house. Thankfully, my husband got a fantastic deal on renting space at the local community center back then. Problem solved!

The only catch was that it put a damper on my decorating ideas. Hanging anything on the walls was a no-go, and the ceilings were just too high for decorations to make much of an impact anyway.

Color Scheme

For a cohesive safari theme, I stuck with the natural colors of popular animals like tigers, lions, and giraffes.

Yellow, orange, and brown featured prominently. I used a bright green throughout for an extra pop of color. It reminded me of the beautiful grass in the savannah!

We had six round guest tables. Two had yellow table covers, two orange, and two green. Each had its own simple centerpiece with floating balloons attached.

DIY Centerpieces

I wish I’d gotten better photos of the centerpieces I made, but I don’t have any. Above, I’ve illustrated exactly how they were assembled.

I started with small green metal buckets and pushed a craft foam block down in each one as far as it would go.

Then I hot-glued craft popsicle sticks to the backs of several painted wooden jungle animals, making sure plenty of the stick was sticking out from the bottom of the animal.

I found the pre-painted animal cutouts at Hobby Lobby. Their designs have changed since then, but you can still find the same types of wooden animals there and at Walmart, usually for only $1-$2 each.

For each centerpiece bucket, I stuck two different animals into the craft blocks by their popsicle sticks, back-to-back so they would face out at the guests on either side. To finish, I just covered the foam blocks with green shredded paper .

We tied the balloons around the popsicle stick bases of the animals.

floating animal-print balloons (cheetah, tiger, and zebra)

Believe it or not, Walmart sells decent-looking animal print balloons ! And they are SUPER cheap.

We just bought a couple of packs so we could have a few balloons floating over each table. They’ve changed over the years (the tiger stripes have been replaced by giraffe print), but you won’t find better safari-themed balloons at a lower price.

DIY Birthday Banner

I wish I had a better picture of this! I made my own birthday banner to match the theme colors.

For each letter piece, the letter was printed in green on white cardstock and trimmed down. I attached those to yellow and orange cardstock that I trimmed with a scallop border punch .

I also used my little Cricut to cut out a monkey, crocodile, and hippopotamus out of cardstock to put between each word.

The banners were hung over his high chair (where he sat for his smash cake presentation).

jungle photo props, bags of simple party favors, and napkins and plates with a

The plates and napkins were the only specifically themed decor-related items I bought for the party… and I don’t recommend them. The plates were small and paper thin, and the napkins were also small and rough to touch.

It’s almost always better to go with standard white napkins and sturdier heavy-duty plates in a solid color.

The cups holding the cutlery were pink because… I already had plenty on hand and was on a tight budget! No shame in my game.

Additional DIY Decor

Info chalkboard.

Despite being very low on energy and not really wanting to (I commuted and worked full-time), I thought it was only fair that I designed this cute “My 1st Birthday” chalkboard-style sign for my son’s party.

After all, I’d done a similar design for my daughter’s Mickey Mouse birthday party when she turned one.

So I made the time to design it in the wee hours of the night, then ordered an 8×10 print of it on black foam core through Mpix . I had a cute little black easel from Michael’s to prop it up on.

Wooden Letters

a safari-themed party table with a framed photo, info chalkboard, and wooden letters spelling a name, each letter painted a different animal print

I bought unfinished wooden letters from Walmart and used cheap acrylic paints to decorate each one in an animal print! It was all freehanded while looking at photos of real animals, and they came out better than I expected. (I keep saying I’m not artistic, but the more I look at the evidence… maybe I am.)

I chose the tiger, zebra, and giraffe prints to match the main cake (and I just had to make the “G” giraffe print). The U is meant to look like an elephant’s trunk, which goes well with his smash cake and favorite animal.

After the party, my husband mounted the letters to a white wooden plank and they’ve been hanging on my son’s bedroom wall ever since!

I already had the white picture frame, and in the photo, he’s wearing the same onesie that he wore to the party!

Foods, Puns, & Drinks

I always incorporate food puns into my parties. Guests get a kick out of it, and thinking up alliteration that goes with theme-related terms inspires me to keep my party menus varied and unique!

These were my jungle-animal foods and drinks:

  • Lion Pizzas: We used whole pepperoni slices to create lion manes around the edges of homemade pizzas, with cut up pepperonis to create the eyes, nose, mouth, and whiskers. I got the pizza pans at Dollar Tree (and still use them)!

  • Snake Subs: To this day, this is one of my favorite party food ideas I’ve ever had. We loaded up four large fresh French bread loaves with thinly sliced ham and American cheese, then cut them into party servings. Before the party, I had prepared many squares of wax paper to spread over the banquet table in a slithering snake pattern. We spread the sandwiches out to look like a snake, winding around other food bowls! I probably could’ve put them directly on the table cover since it was new and plastic, but I wanted to ensure the sandwiches were as contaminant-free as possible.

  • Monkey Treats: Yes, I served a bowl of whole bananas at a birthday party. Monkeys are my favorite animal, so I wanted a food to honor them. And you know what? LOTS of guests happily ate bananas – especially the kids!

  • Tiger Cub Cuties: I simply drew tiger “stripes” and cute cat faces on cutie orange peels. I used a Sharpie instead of a food-safe marker since the peel is not eaten.

  • Tiger Tails: Cheeto Puffs are superior to regular Cheetos. I’ll fight about it. But either version would make a cute tiger tail.

Cheeto Puffs in a bowl labeled as

  • Animal Crackers: I mean… there’s really no explanation needed for this one. They make a great treat that kids will stop to eat, too.

a bowl of Animal Crackers

  • Elephant Snacks: This is not an appropriate food if anyone attending the party has a peanut allergy, but if you can have it, this is a cute idea. Elephants love peanuts, and so do party grazers!

  • Kangaroo Kabobs: Before you leave a condescending comment, please know that I know kangaroos aren’t native to Africa. But it was the only “K” animal that sounded good with “kabobs”. Guess I could’ve called it Flamingo Fruit instead.

a platter of fruit skewers with a food card labeled

  • Watering Hole: Once again, I am aware alligators don’t come from Africa. But ‘Gator’ade was a better pun for the green Hawaiian Punch drink… so just roll with it, okay? The Jungle Juice was a large jug of blue Hawaiian Punch, a 2-liter of Sprite, and a can of frozen lemonade mixed together. We also had sweet tea, bottled water, and other sodas.

First Birthday Safari Onesie

I ordered a custom onesie from BittyandBoho on Etsy featuring cute safari animals and the text “Hugo is 1”. This was the most expensive single thing I bought for the party!

They don’t have that exact style anymore, but they’ve got similar ones to choose from.

We did a little photoshoot at home before the party so I could frame his photo as part of the decor, and he also wore it throughout the whole party – even while eating his smash cake!

It is now folded up and kept in his keepsake box.

The Big Cake

a homemade three-tier safari birthday cake, each tier a different jungle animal print (tiger, giraffe, and zebra)

Yes, this big ol’ three-tier birthday cake was entirely homemade! And it was a simple design, so it was actually pretty easy to do.

Each tier featured an animal print: tiger, giraffe, and zebra. I cut out the stripes and spots from the fondant using my fondant tools (all freehanded).

The “1” on the top was shaped out of leftover white fondant, with a toothpick in the bottom to hold it on the cake. The “grass” was buttercream piped around the edges (to cover up my messy fondant edges, haha).

Since there was no easy way to put Hugo’s name over the animal prints, I made a little yellow banner out of fondant ( tylose powder helped harden it so it would stand up). I wrote the message on it with an edible marker .

Elephant Smash Cake

Since Hugo’s official favorite animal at the time was the elephant, that’s what we made for his smash cake!

It was a homemade white cake baked in an actual elephant-shaped cake pan . My mother helped frost it with buttercream made from the Wilton recipe .

It came out so cute and was the perfect size for his high chair tray.

Party Favors

I couldn’t find any cute safari-themed party favors, so I bought a mega pack of little noisemakers and toys and divided them among some plastic favor bags I got at Walmart.

I did, however, find these cute jungle photo booth props that we placed on a table for everyone to snap selfies with. Many guests took a piece or two home at the end (with my encouragement).

Creative Converting Assorted Photo Booth Jungle Animals Party Props (10 Piece), One size, Multicolor

We didn’t play any games because of the venue’s rules, but we had plenty to keep us busy. With such a large family the adults prefer just chatting and catching up with each other. The kids are perfectly happy chasing each other around a large room and playing with spare balloons.

Hopefully, my son’s safari-themed first birthday party has given you some great ideas for your little one’s party! No matter what, you’re going to have a roar-some time.

This is what Danielle shared about styling the party:

“Well… I had no choice but to throw an epic first birthday for my son. Initially, I wanted to just order pizza and toss everyone in the pool. But the closer it got to his party, the more people kept asking me what I was doing for his first birthday. Everyone knows I’m an event planner, so the expectation immediately went through the roof!! Long story short… there was no pizza. Instead!!! Luka got a jungle safari themed first birthday party! The inspiration came from the event space. I wanted to add to the space and not overpower it. I also wanted to make sure that it was kid-friendly. So I created a fun spread outside for them which included a ball pit, lawn games, a safari tent, an ice cream cart and much more!”

Coolest Safari Theme Party Ideas

Coolest Safari Party Ideas

Looks like a bunch of untamed kids are about to have a wild time at your safari theme party!!

Get ready for some ROARING fun!

First off, there’s an overwhelming selection of Safari theme party supplies.But don’t worry… You won’t need to go out on a wild expedition trying to find the best deal. Just compare between the packs below which cover pretty much all the Safari party items on the market:

safari birthday

Safari Invitations

Here’s a cool do-it-yourself idea for passport invitations. Write something like:

“This is your passport for a birthday safari filled with fun and excitement. (Birthday Kid) will be leading an expedition through (your address- adding “Africa”). The safari theme party adventure starts at (time). All explorers should bring their completed passports. Explorers may want to practice their wild animal sounds, especially roaring like a lion!!”

Ask the kids to dress up in khaki clothes and whatever safari-ware (or animals) they like.

Safari Decorations

Deck your safari theme party area with safari-colored balloons (brown, tan, green, yellow etc.) and same color streamers.

At the entrance to the safari theme party, you can also put up your own homemade sign post with lots of arrows pointing in different directions, such as “Zimbabwe —> 3000 miles” and “Ngorogoro Crater—> 899 miles”, etc…

Safari Party

Inside you can put construction paper animal prints that can guide the kids to the party area. If you’re having the safari theme party in the evening, you can place tiki torches all around your yard and everyone will feel as if they’re in Africa!

Use chalk to draw big animal footprints on your driveway and leading to your front door. Here are some animal footprints you can print out:

This is fun activity to do with your kid/s before the party. Go out to nature and collect all kinds of natural decor: all kinds of acorns, rocks, beautiful leaves, old branches, etc. and use them to decorate your Safari party area (easy, fun and doesn’t cost a thing!!). Also ask each guest to bring a favorite stuffed animal. Put them in a “corral” as the kids arrive. You have a free and SAFE petting zoo and adds to decoration.

You can also create animal stands that the kids can put their heads in the hole and take a picture as animals (send out these pictures when sending thank-you cards):

Safari Party

Unless you live in Africa, the only wild animals you’ll have at your safari theme party are the guests. And they sure can make a ruckus. But to get everyone into the safari theme party mood, you can download and play in the background animal sounds of leopards, hippos, rhinos, monkeys and other animals sounding their call of the wild!

The kids can wear safari pith helmets, animal headbands or ears out of construction paper, fake fur (glue or sew onto inexpensive headbands or barrette clips). If you decide to turn the children into animals instead of safari hunters, be sure to paint their faces accordingly!

Take a look at all the coolest homemade Safari costumes .

Safari Icebreaker Activities

When the kids arrive at your safari theme party, take their “passports” and send them to the Med booth where they receive a malaria pill (jelly bean in a glass bottle with a big red cross sticker on it – and explain to them what malaria is) and a typhoid shot (a toy needle) and can be warned about yellow fever, don’t drink the water, etc.

Charade Cards

One of the games described in the safari theme party games section is animal charades. To prepare for the game, put out a bunch of magazines and have the kids find animals, cut them out, and paste them on index cards. These’ll serve as the charade cards later on.

Binocular Craft

Have the kids take two toilet paper rolls, styrofoam cups, etc., and glue or tape them together. They can decorate their binoculars with all kinds of stickers, glitter, stamps etc. Next they can cut out cellophane circles (or colored saran wrap) and attach to the carton rolls with rubber bands or glue. You can then attach yarn for a nice neck strap.

Binocular Craft Making

We had the binocular craft at my daughter Maya’s 3rd birthday and it was a hit. I photographed the entire process and put together this page with all the info (and a few pictures from the party) to help you create your own Styrofoam cup binoculars.

Slithering Snakes

Not all snakes are scary! The kids will love making their own boas and rattlesnakes that they can wear around their necks. You can ask each kid to bring their own necktie, or purchase some from a thrift store. Let them open the large end of the tie and carefully cut the threads apart. Have them stuff each tie with cotton balls (or any other materials you may have), making sure to push it all the way up to the skinny end. Afterwards, sew the end up or glue it shut with a hot glue gun. Have the kids decorate their snakes with felt, glitter, wiggly eyes, buttons, etc.

Animal Masks

Check out these free printable animal masks (print them out and let the kids color in the black and white masks, later they can wear them!):

Make-a-Critter

This is a great activity that let’s the kids make up a whole new animal. Take a large sheet of white construction paper and hold it so that the shorter side is towards you. Then fold it in half (short side to short side) and then in half again (again short side to short side). Unfold the paper, and spread it out on the table, then give the kids crayons or markers and have one kid draw an animal head in the top rectangle of the paper.

When the kid finishes, fold back the top rectangle so it’s hidden from view, and only the three remaining rectangles are showing. Then pass the paper to the next kid to draw the body and arms of an animal in the next rectangle. Repeat, having the next kids draw legs in the third rectangle, and feet in the fourth rectangle. When they’ve finished, unfold the paper to see what new animal the kids have created. You can pass around more than one piece of paper at the same time, so the kids can create a whole bunch of new animals.

Homemade Safari Cakes

Take a look at all the coolest homemade Safari birthday cakes .

Safari Theme Party Food and Drink

Here are some cool safari theme party food ideas. (You can create a signpost with all the sorts of arrows pointing to the foods and describing what they are…)

Safari Party

  • Animal-Striped Pizzas (you can be very creative with this one by making your own pizzas using alternates of white, yellow and orange cheese strips to look like animal print. You can also add toppings in alternates, like a row of olives in a diagonal, then a row of cheese, another row of olives, etc. for tasty animal stripes.)
  • Pigs in blankets (hot dogs)
  • French Flies (fries)
  • Peanut Butter and Jellyphant sandwiches (Cut these out with an elephant cookie cutter)
  • Toad-slaw (coleslaw)
  • Crocodile eye balls and guts (yes, I know this sounds gross, but the kids love this spaghetti with meatballs.)
  • Monkey Meal (Peel a banana and put it in a hot dog roll…. Then spread peanut butter and maybe a bit of honey and you’ll be amazed at how tasty the monkey sandwich is!)
  • Snake dogs (Make multiple diagonal cuts into each hot dogs, not quite all the way through, and fill the slits with ketchup, mustard and relish. The kids love eating these “snakes”.)

Safari Party

Safari Theme Party Drinks

  • Alligator-ade (green Gatorade!!)
  • Swamp Juice – Kids will be mystified when they witness your power to turn ordinary green Gatorade into a steamy swamp! Start with green punch and after you’ve placed a filled glass in front of each kid, add a few Pop Rocks candies to each one. Since this candy is processed with carbon dioxide, it will crackle, pop, and split when it comes into contact with the green punch. AWESOME!

Tip: Make frozen ice cubes with raisins in them so it looks like flies are floating in their safari juices. Kids just love this!

Safari Theme Party Treats

  • Unshelled peanuts
  • Gummy worms
  • Animal crackers
  • Animal fruit snacks
  • Any kind of animal-shaped foods
  • Fire Ants (plain or chocolate covered raisins)
  • Bugs on a Log – Take a celery stick, smother with peanut butter, and add little ants (raisins). Another variation is to dip a pretzel rod halfway into peanut butter and roll in chocolate chips. This is a fun activity for little children and a treat that can be instantly consumed. And, it’s even HEALTHY!
  • Worms in Dirt – crumbled Oreo cookies topped with gummy snakes.

Bugs on a Log and Worms in Dirt

  • Cheese Bugs – Slice cubes of cheese and add thin, curling snacks (like the type seen in the photo).

Tip: you can serve many of these things in pith helmets.

Safari Party Favors

A great safari theme party absolutely needs cool favors that’ll have the kids going wild! Use miniature safari trinkets as favors (such as little compasses, little flashlights, mini cameras, wild animal bouncing balls, gummy worms, animal crackers, plastic sunglasses, animal tattoos, and much more).

2. Zebra Notes : Technically these are Valentines, but we love the idea of giving out these little cards as invitations. Just tie a little animal onto each card for a fun pre-party favor. (via Sarah M Style )

3. Animal Print Photo Booth : Our very own Creative Director Anj has a particular obsession with animal print, and created a totally wild photo booth for her 30th. (via Anjelika Temple on Flickr )

4. Leopard Print Cake : For a more refined safari theme, paint a white cake with yellow leopard spots and decorate the table with lots of greenery and natural fibers. (via Wedding Chicks )

5. Animal Party : Not only are we loving the animals on the table, the colorful stools are adorable! With a red and white color palette, the safari animals take on an almost circus theme. (via Ikea )

6. Tiger Cupcakes : Meow! These tiger striped cupcakes are actually super easy to make but the effect is amazing! Top them with white frosting and a mini toy tiger for extra wow. (via Amy Atlas )

7. Palm Tree Table Settings : For an adult safari, stick with golds, rich browns and amber. Just the simple touch of a mini palm leaf on each plate adds just the right amount of color. (via The Wedding Chicks )

8. Red and Blue Safari : Even though this is a kids’ party, the simple color palette feels very grown up. (via Ikea )

9. Wild Cake Pop : How cute are these animal print cake pops ?! Get the affect by dripping chocolate horizontally for the zebra stripes or by painting little half circles for the leopard print. (via Popsugar )

10. Zebra Stationery ($18): Send out invitations to your chic safari party using these very glam zebra stripe stationery. Never ones to settle for black and white, we love the pink and blue options.

11. Interactive Wall Decal : Even without the zebra, taping balloons to the wall with zebra washi tape is really cool party decor. (via Catch My Party )

12. Wild Animal Drink Stirrers ($17): If you’re going to be cocktailing , you absolutely must have these golden zoo animal stirrers.

13. Leopard Balloons : This is what your party needs — gold and orange animal print balloons . (via Project Nursery )

14. Wrapped Drinks : Wrap mason jars in burlap and zebra-print ribbon for a classy touch of safari fun. Bonus points for putting them all in a bamboo tray. (via Kara’s Party Ideas )

15. Put a Mask on It : What a cute idea to put an animal mask on each guest’s chair! Not only does it make awesome decor, they can take them home as party favors. (via Celebration At Home )

16. Printed Sunglass Favors ($7): Kids and adults alike will have fun with these neon print sunglasses! Give them out as party favors or use them as a prop in a photo booth !

17. Safari Dessert Table : Cover the dessert bar with a burlap tablecloth and then put all the desserts on trays with cute little handwritten labels. We especially love those animal print cupcakes. (via Kara’s Party Ideas )

18. Girly Safari Party : Holy girly overload! Take a whole new direction and make a pink party with pretty frosted animal sugar cookies and pastel decorations. (via Hostess With the Mostess )

19. Animal Print Mask ($1): Get your party animal on with these adorable masks! We’re pretty sure not just the kids would have fun wearing these.

20. Pink Safari : How cute is this layered cake with the animal and banner topper ! We appreciate the more subtle take on a safari themed party. (via Kara’s Party Ideas )

21. Birthday Animal Gift Wrap ($7): Wrap your presents in this whimsical paper to make your gift table the wildest one ever.

22. DIY Wild Cat Stand : Wish you had these incredibly gorgeous cake stands? Well you’re in luck, because these are actually really easy to make. If gold isn’t your jam (say what?!), reach for a paint bottle of neon green or pink. (via Make )

23. Animal Print Candles ($8): Make a wish on these party candles and your wildest dream just might true.

24. Gum Ball Jars : Another easy DIY alert! Depending on your color preference, you could fill the jars with all kinds of colored candy although we think the gum balls add a fun circus element. (via Pink Pistachio )

25. Baby’s First Safari : This safari party is all glam with a gold and white color scheme. The animal silhouetted banner would be super easy to DIY with a stencil and some spray paint. (via Hostess With the Mostess )

26. Animal Hearted Invites : Inside each of these loving invites is a little toy animal with a heart painted on it! We are most definitely RSVPing yes! (via Design Love Fest )

27. Party Hats : How adorable are those tiny party hats! Sometimes it’s the smallest detail that just takes a party to a whole ‘nother level of charming. (via Pink Pistachio )

28. Giraffe Stencil Glasses : Whether you’re serving milk or cocktails, stenciled zoo animals on the glasses are always a good idea. Mix up the colors or animals so guests remember which drank is there drank. (via Hostess With the Mostess )

29. Zoo Candles ($11): Pick up a pack of these animal candles for a cake topper that does it all.

30. Ruffle Animal Cake : Who would’ve though a ruffled cake would look so good with zoo animals on it! The simplicity of the all white cake makes it the perfect backdrop for all the animal patterns. (via Lil Sugar )

31. Painted Animals : Zoo animals in pajamas? Have you ever seen anything so cute! Just paint cheap toy animals in bright colors and decorate them with mini pom poms. (via Pretty Providence )

32. Face Masks : For the very mature safari party, try a black and gold color palette. These paper mache masks would be incredible in a photo booth! (via The Sweetest Occasion )

33. Neon Jungle: Naturally, we love anything neon, and these animals are pretty much our favorite. Paint them your favorite colors and then use them to top the cake, tie them to gifts or just set them around for extra colorful decor. (via Fellow Fellow)

34. Golden Safari Centerpieces : This is definitely the most glitzy safari we’ve ever seen and we love it. Running a strip of burlap down the middle of the table is the perfect way to show off the delicate gold animals and white flowers. (via Hostess with the Mostess )

35. Glitter Boxes : Why settle for paint when you can add glitter! Just coat toy animals in glue and dip them in colored glitter for some adorable decor. (via Hostess with the Mostess )

36. DIY Party Animal Pendants : Give these necklaces out as party favors, but don’t be surprised if you see your friends wearing them long after the party is over. (via Flamingo Toes )

37. DIY Golden Animal Placeholders : These would be the perfect way to number the tables or to tell guests where to sit. (via Brit + Co )

38. Party Animal Pumpkins : We’re not used to seeing pumpkins outside of Halloween, but it turns out they make really cool zoo animals. Especially that flamingo . (via Studio DIY )

39. Tiny Party Hats : Roll tiny hats out of colored paper and tape them to plastic animals. We can see putting one of these on each cupcake. (via Oh Happy Day )

40. Minimalist Safari Cake : Sometimes the simple look is the most effective and this white cake is charming with just a couple animals on top. Although we feel like they secretly want a party hat. (via Bleubird )

Chemmy Alcott re-creates her African safari honeymoon with husband and two sons - see the magical photos

The ski racer tied the knot with dougie crawford in 2014.

Emily Horan

After making her name hurtling down snow-covered mountains, former Olympic skier Chemmy Alcott found herself in very different surroundings to experience a moment she'll never forget. 

The Ski Sunday presenter was celebrating her tenth wedding anniversary in Africa with her husband Dougie Crawford and their sons Locki, seven, and Cooper, five, when together they watched a magical sunset over the Serengeti. 

The family of four soaked up magical views of the Serengeti on their African adventure

"It was incredible to watch the magic through their eyes and to see how enchanted they were," she tells HELLO ! , exclusively sharing photos from the family holiday, which re-created the couple's honeymoon to Tanzania ten years ago. "It felt like the boys' first proper adventure. I know they will remember it forever."

Chemmy, 41, and fellow professional skier Dougie, 37,  tied the knot on 6 June 2014 in a fairytale ceremony  at West London's Syon House, followed by a honeymoon safari, which marked the beginning of their "adult life" – made all the more poignant by the fact the pair had just retired from competitive racing. "This trip reminded Dougie and me of our new beginning we had ten years ago," says Chemmy. 

Locki, 7, and Cooper, 5, helped their parents re-create moments from their Tanzanian honeymoon

The family stayed at Nimali Tarangire and Nimali Mara, sleeping in beautiful safari lodges, with the glass-fronted tented suites offering stunning panoramas of grassy savannahs. 

Safari offered thrilling sightings of lions, giraffes, baby elephants and hyenas

Excursions into the wild brought thrilling sightings of lions, giraffes, baby elephants and hyenas. "We also saw a rhino, which sparked a conversation with the boys about extinction and how important it is to protect the world around us," Chemmy says. "The one thing we didn't see was a leopard, so we'll have to come back."

Organised with the help of Stubborn Mule Travel , which specialises in holidays tailored for families, and the   Tanzania Tourist Board , the trip saw Chemmy and Dougie re-create memories from their honeymoon. Among them were visiting a Maasai village, where the boys were "enthralled" to meet a warrior who had lost his fingers to a lion, and a primary school helped by the children's charity   Right to Play . 

Chemmy took her two young boys to see the work of charity Right to Play

"We're very fortunate for the incredible life we have, so I wanted my boys to see other children their age who are living with challenges. They got so much from it. We had a two-hour drive back from the school and they asked Dougie and me questions the whole way."

Chemmy and her family ended the weeklong trip in Zanzibar, at the archipelago's Lux* Marijani hotel,  where they enjoyed snorkelling, dolphin-spotting and climbing coconut palms - and even feasted on a luxurious floating breakfast in the resort's pool. 

The Lux* Marijani hotel offers incredible floating breakfasts

It was the perfect way to celebrate a decade of marriage, says Chemmy, and the couple's love has only grown stronger over the years. 

"We're team-mates," she says. "There's a silent understanding that we'll always support each other through everything and that's become ingrained in our love after ten years. What I love most is how Dougie brings out the best in me. He's the gel that keeps our family together and happy. I'm so lucky to have found my soulmate." 

The African adventure was the perfect way to celebrate Chemmy and Dougie's ten years of marriage

A two-week holiday for a family of four in Tanzania, including safari and beach, costs from £19,000.
