Description: Described as an unforgettable African experience infused with Zimbabwean cuisine, spirited performances and traditional storytelling, The Boma - Dinner & Drum Show 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. The acclaimed Zambezi Drumbeat provides a wonderful interactive drumming experience.

The atmosphere is very relaxing, the place is located in the midst of the bush, you have the opportunity of viewing wild animals as you dine. Every evening there is entertainment ranging from dramas, local traditional dancing and music. The staff is very cheerful and helpful at the same. Its a wonderful place to take your entire family if you searching for a peaceful, relaxing and natural environment

“A fun night out, atmosphere and extras make it all”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2012

The Boma is an experience of atmosphere rather than food. Do not expect gourmet fare, this is slightly above a braai restaurant. The extras make it - you're greeted at the door with a African print kikoyi, your face is painted, you're served Chibuku (local brew) in tin safari cups as an aperitif, you're treated to a show and you're given the opportunity to drum and dance yourself.

On the side you might have a meal and there may be some interesting game meat served. If you get into the spirit of things, you'll have a great time. You might also get to eat some warthog. Go, it's unique and fun.

It was awesome playing bongo-drums with the band, but the food was pretty ordinary to plain bad.
