This is an evening not to be missed. It is a unique cultural experience for the whole family to enjoy. Immerse yourself in the pulse of Africa. Hear the beat, feel the welcome warmth of the people and taste the flavours of this great continent.
Boma dinner: “The Place of Eating” – Set in the nearby Gusu Forest, just 500 metres from the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge. The Boma offers a unique African experience including traditional dancers and mouth watering local dishes. Highly recommended !! This is your chance to engage with Africa.
This is a unique cultural experience as well as a great restaurant. Feel the beat of Africa in this glorious setting overlooking the Gusu Forest. The Menu specializes in a range of traditional Zimbabwean dishes, as well as a barbeque buffet, so everyone’s tastes are catered for but also with the chance to try local delicacies such as mopani worms, game stews and traditional beer. The Boma offers a four-course meal combining a mouth watering choice of starters from the kitchen, soup from the campfire and a substantial barbeque buffet served on cast iron plates. If you are not an adventurous eater go for the delicious beef, pork, fish and chicken or a variety of vegetarian meals that you have to choose from. The Boma is renowned for its warthog fillet. Definitely worth a try. With a wide variety of salads from the salad bar and to follow a choice of delicious desserts from the buffet area, you will be spoiled for choice - and not go hungry.
Shangaan dancers and singers entertain you while you wade your way though the delicacies on offer. The Restaurant has its own sangoma - a traditional storyteller. As a round off for a magnificent evening of fun and food, the renowned drummers - Amazulu - strike up the beat and rhythm of Africa. You are invited to participate in the drumming and dancing show. This is the highlight of a glorious evening of African extravaganza.
The Boma vehicles pick up from hotels and lodges from 19h00 and guests arrive at about 7h15. Everyone is seated by about 19h30 for an evening filled with entertainment.
Guests are welcomed with a traditional greeting in the local languages, Shona and Ndebele. The guests are then dressed in ‘chitenges’ (traditional robes) and prepared to enter the main enclosure.
They are invited to take part in a hand washing ceremony before sampling traditional beer and snacks, as a prelude to dinner. After dinner, guests are encouraged to join in the drumming extravaganza.
Guests should dress casually and bring along light but warm clothing for the months of May, June, July and August.
This is a must do experience if you are in Victoria Falls! A chance to feel the pulse of Africa. I was welcomed by the friendliest, most energetic and exotic group of people. The selection of extraordinary foods was vast and really tasty. The Warthog Fillet is a must try and the creme brulee was excellent. I danced and drummed away. An evening to remember.
