We had dinner at Boma on our visit to Victoria Falls. It was part of our Lion Tour's package. What a great experience. We were greeted with face painting and wrapped in a traditional cloth. We were then invited to dance with a group of dancers. My son caught it all on his IPhone.

The atmosphere was festive and traditional looking. The waiter was attentive. The food was good. The night included a large buffet with traditional dishes. We had the warthog, crocodile, various vegetables. I tried the Mopani Worm and got a certificate to prove it. It was fun to try different things.

There was great entertainment - drumming and dancing with audience participation. We had a great evening and I would recommend the experience for everyone.

The family went to Boma last year for the New Year's Eve celebrations. It was memorable. I specifically was pleased that they made you feel at home when they wrapped you in traditional cloths and face painting. The food was good and atmosphere even better. I loved the setting. I also liked the fact that the children were taken care of and were able to enjoy the live music and dancing.

This is a very popular restaurant, and the drumming is a great experience. However the food is mediocre and I feel the Boma has gone downhill. The Drinks are very expensive especially if you have cocktails. For US$10 cheaper Jungle Junction at the Victoria Falls Hotel is far better value for money, with much better food and they have a tribal dancing show too.

I enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and the entertainment. Food was mostly traditional fare with grilled game and domesticated meats. It was a wonderful experience.

Lots of entertainment with music and dancing. The staff danced, sang and played drums and led the guests in drumming. Everyone happily participated. Very memorable!
