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.

Fun place, there is a zulu, who reads the future :he told me that i would get married and i didn't....Well, its fun, the Zulus dance, the buffet has every kind of western and african food, but don't let the drivers who park outside the hotel, to rip you off while taking you to your hotel..

If you go with no expectations for a great meal but just to have a good time, it's worth the visit. It was very funny to watch my 26 yr old son and my husband beating their drums (everyone gets one).

We were greeted by a colourful singing troupe who put headbands and coloured cloaks on us then included us in a dancing singing line up where our photos were taken.
We moved into a great hall which was very African with high reed ceilings and the animal on the spit in the middle of the open area - lots of variety, I did not eat the warthog or bugs, but others did and gave good comments. There was a dancing singing show and all given and invited to play the bongo type drum - MC was excellent. Possibly it was a little too dark to really see the food and the toilets were outside - awkward as it was raining and you got little wet finding them. But it was an experience - not sure I wish to do this again as I think it would be a one off thing.

I found the whole evening disappointing and un original. Food was very poor, entertainment was "bottled" and had obviously been done far too often as performers were not interested at all

We loved every thing except the food. The space is wonderful, the shows are interesting, and you can participate (playing drums and dancing); you can even have your face painted on African way. Very expensive though.
