The vibe and evening is really fun! Being from Zimbabwe myself and travelling with a tourist, I thought it was a lovely experience and way to experience some of Africa. The food is interesting and the service friendly. Good to do!

Some of the food was good, but a very 'tourist' venue. We were rushed in, rushed to order but slow service, not enough servers.
The entertainment as OK.

Go there if you have spare time and a few spare $

We had a great time, I know it's touristy and it's supposed to be quite expensive for Victoria Falls but for the food we ate it was great value! Went with a group of 10 which I would highly recommend, the more the merrier at this place! Definitely an experience in Victoria Falls I would recommend!

A fun and entertaining night that starts with a bit of dress up and a dance with some energetic locals. The food is a huge smorgasbord of meats and vegetables from standard fare to a wide variety of game, and if you're brave enough, a mopani worm! The Boma Man makes his way through the tables mixing up a delicious drink of vodka, honey and cinnamon. There's some wonderful entertainment which includes small (bongo) drums being handed out to everyone. The group drumming session that follows is a lot of fun. The Boma Night should not be missed

Food is adventurous, so if you are not, go elsewhere! But if you are, it is lots of fun. Many choices, and great entertainment. Buffet for much of meal. including grill for meat and veggies.
