We ate at Boma after spending the day in Animal Kingdom. Out of all of our dinner reservations, I would have to say this was the most hectic. We got there and the waiting area was absolutely packed, so we knew we were going to be in for a long wait. There is a lot of activity and "energy" in... More

There was always a demand for Boma. We only went for breakfast. excellent choice and staff very helpful. They certainly kept you topped up with jungle juice. Its part of the dining plan. Wished we had tried the dinner but ran out of time.

The breakfast buffet is probably the best in Walt Disney World. Tons of options, and in a wonderful setting at Animal Kingdom lodge. Afterwards take a stroll through the hotel and watch the giraffe out in the yard!

It was a great experience, trying all of the food. I would highly recommend the Durban chicken and chakalaka (salsa-like tomato dish). Some of the other dishes popular in Africa that I didn't really care for, are fufu (dish made from sweet potatoes), tabouleh (bitter slaw-like dish), and mulligatawny (soup).

This was my favorite meal of our week at Disney. The staff were amazing and our hostess talked to my kids and smiled beautifully and our bedraggled family perked up and enjoyed the rest of the evening. The buffet is extensive and offers something for everyone. There are spicy foods with African flare and more typical meats and vegetables that... More

Welcomed by South Africans and served by a Moroccan, the smiles started the night off well. Some delish couscous and Southern African treats, this place did have various flavours from Africa. Great place for dinner with family or friends
