Description: Described as an unforgettable African experience infused with Zimbabwean cuisine, spirited performances and traditional storytelling, The Boma – Place of Eating has firmly established itself as a Victoria Falls highlight.Partially open to the skies, The Boma specialises in a superb selection of Zimbabwean dishes. A four-course meal combines a choice of starters with a barbecue buffet. The adventurous are enticed with local delicacies such as mopani worms and potjiekos (hunter’s game stew), whilst those wishing to enjoy beef, pork, fish and chicken or a variety of vegetarian meals are welcome to do so.The sights and sounds of the evening are accentuated by a feast of nightly entertainment, incorporating traditional dancers, who captivate guests with their vibrant songs and dance.

“Such fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2011

I appreciated the variety of foods, although I am not sure that I am adventurous enough to eat all of the exotic fare. The dancing and especially the interactive drumming was a lot of fun.

“Go Early”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

The entertainment starts about 7 so go early to get your monies worth. It closed at 10 when we went and we didn't arrive until 9.15 so didn't have long. Great for trying different foods and seeing something a little rustic.

It will cost about $40.00 per adult

“Ok...... not my favorite”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2011

service was ok. waiter came but we didnt see again after he took our wine order. food was ok. didnt go in with high expectations. Did get to try many different types of meat (ostrich, buffalo, warthog, guinea fowl). be prepared that their are some different people that visit your table (not pushy however) to see the picture that they take of you on entry and also a "fortune teller". Again, they were not pushy but they did interupt the dinner. probably better for large groups or those with kids.
