This was an option during our stay at Victoria Falls Safari lodge. It's basically a buffet with "traditional" entertainment with that entertainment inviting participation.

The atmosphere and food are excellent. There is a remarkable variety of African game. The salads are well done. The problem is the entertainment. Too much drumming. It has the flavor of a cheap cruise ship Congo line. We left mid way

I felt the dinner was a little hokey but was interesting. It is a large space with lots of people. Has the opportunity to taste some different foods such as Warthog Steak, which was tasty, but all-in-all I was not overly impressed.More
