Vic Falls - Boma Dinner & Drum Show

The Boma Dinner & Drum Show provides a unique cultural experience that bombards the senses with the tastes, sights, sounds and smells of Africa – together with the warmth and hospitality of Zimbabwe and its people. Located on the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge resort, The Boma is partly open to the spectacular African night skies. Guests staying at Victoria Falls Safari Lodge resort enjoy a courtesy shuttle to and from The Boma, whilst those from other hotels may be transported for a nominal charge.

This is a "Must Do", with exuberant cultural songs, dances and an extraordinary traditional meal! This unique dining experience, coupled with a feast of cultural entertainment, is a magical night out to remember. Shangaan and Ndebele dancers and singers will inspire you with their pulsating energy, and we’ll soon have to hold you back from the dance floor!

The Boma is open daily for dinner from 7pm. Diners are welcomed and dressed in ‘chitenges’ (traditional sarong) prior to entering the main enclosure. They are then invited to take part in a hand washing ceremony before sampling local snacks and traditional beer, as a prelude to dinner. A feast of nightly entertainment incorporates traditional dancers, a local folk storyteller and fortuneteller.

Boma Excursion

Dress casually in light clothing in the summer months from September to April and in warm clothing during the winter months from May to August.

We highly recommend that you are seated at this Victoria Falls restaurant by 19h15 for an evening filled with entertainment from traditional dancers, to a local story teller and a fortune teller. Don’t rush off after dinner, as you can join in the drumming extravaganza, which is always a highlight of the evening.

The Boma Restaurant specialises in a superb selection of traditional Zimbabwean dishes and is renowned for its warthog fillet. Tuck into a four-course meal of mouth-watering starters from the kitchen, soup from the campfire, a substantial barbeque buffet served on cast iron plates with a selection of salads, followed by a choice of delicious desserts. Everyone’s tastes are catered for, and whilst the adventurous are enticed with local delicacies such as Mopani worms and game stews, those wishing to enjoy beef, pork, fish and chicken or a variety of vegetarian meals are welcome to do so.

An on-site shop sells some of the frequently requested accessories such as The Boma cruet sets, potjies, polo shirts, chitenges and caps. Tapes and CDs of the traditional entertainment are also a popular memento.
