If you're planning a party and looking for a fun and unique theme, why not consider a jungle safari party? With its wild and adventurous vibe, a jungle safari theme is perfect for both kids and adults. Here are some ideas to help you plan the ultimate jungle safari party.


Start by creating some fun and exciting invitations to set the tone for your jungle safari party. You can create invitations in the shape of jungle animals like lions, tigers, and zebras, or you can use jungle-themed stickers and stamps to decorate your invitations. Make sure to include all the important details like the date, time, location, and dress code.


Jungle safari party decorations

The decorations are a crucial part of any party, and a jungle safari party is no exception. Start by transforming your party space into a lush and tropical jungle. You can use green streamers and balloons to create a jungle canopy, and you can hang paper vines and leaves from the ceiling to add some texture.

Next, add some jungle animal cutouts, like lions, tigers, and monkeys, to your walls and tables. You can even add some inflatable palm trees and animal print tablecloths to complete the look. And don't forget to add some jungle sound effects, like bird calls and animal noises, to really immerse your guests in the jungle atmosphere.


Encourage your guests to dress up in jungle-themed costumes to really get into the spirit of the party. You can suggest costumes like jungle explorers, safari guides, or even jungle animals like lions, tigers, and zebras. Make sure to let your guests know about the dress code in your invitations, so they have plenty of time to plan their costumes.

If you're looking for more ideas for jungle safari party food and drinks, here are some additional suggestions:

Jungle Juice 

Create a refreshing and fruity punch using a combination of fruit juices like pineapple, orange, and mango. Add some sliced fruit and garnish with an umbrella for a tropical touch.


Grilled meats like chicken, beef, or pork are always a hit at parties. Marinate them in a spicy jerk seasoning or a sweet and tangy BBQ sauce to give them a jungle-inspired flavor.

Fruit Skewers

Cut up a variety of colorful fruits like pineapple, kiwi, and strawberries and put them on skewers for a healthy and delicious snack. 

Jungle Salad

Mix together some leafy greens, like spinach or kale, with sliced mango, avocado, and cashews. Drizzle with a citrusy dressing for a refreshing and healthy side dish.

Coconut Shrimp

Coat jumbo shrimp in a crispy coconut batter and serve with a sweet and spicy dipping sauce for a tasty appetizer. 

Snake Sandwiches

Cut small sandwich triangles into the shape of snakes and use cucumber slices for eyes. Fill with your favorite sandwich fillings for a fun and tasty snack.

Snakebite Cocktails

Mix together equal parts lager and hard cider for a refreshing and fruity drink that is sure to pack a punch. Garnish with a slice of lime or a twist of snake candy.

For the main course, consider serving a selection of exotic meats like kangaroo, alligator, or ostrich. And if you're looking for something a little more traditional, you can always serve burgers and hot dogs with jungle-inspired toppings like mango salsa or guacamole.

Remember to also consider any dietary restrictions your guests may have and offer vegetarian and vegan options as well. With these tasty food and drink options, your jungle safari party is sure to be a hit!
