I wish we had stayed longer is what i can say about this georgeous property, as we got all of 1 night here which did not do justice to the hospitality the staff extended. With a camp-like ambience, the Safari Club was warm and seated enclosures through out the property, to lounge around in made one feel very much at home. There is a rustic feel to the property, but no modern amenity goes overlooked. The experience is like staying at a national park, without the disadvantage of the poor connectivity and for the faint hearted - without the risk of the creatures of the jungle coming too close.
The highlight however is the dinner at The Boma, another property owned by the Albeida group. The precursor of things to come is the lamb being barbecued at the entrance. You realise this is not going to be an ordinary experience, and with every passing moment you are slowly and surely transported to (a different) Planet Boma. The beating of the drums starts slowly, and the cresendo rises higher and higher till at the climax, all the 300 odd people have overcome their inhibitions and are participating in the extempore contest between tables. The evening concludes with the dance section which everybody partakes in, and may i mention it is some of the most bizzare free form genre dancing I have seen anywhere in the world. The Boma is not only a great place for guests at the Safari Club but for anyone visiting Vic Falls.
Must Do. Very Experiential.
