"More Than a Night out - The Boma is an Experience"
Partially open to the African skies, it offers a unique experience that bombards the senses with the tastes, sights, sounds and smells of Africa - together with the warmth and hospitality of Zimbabwe and it's people.
"The Boma - Place of Eating"
Specialising in a superb selection of traditional Zimbabwean dishes, 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.
They offer a wide variety of salads from the salad bar and to follow a choice of delicious desserts from the buffet area.
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. The Boma is
renowned for its warthog fillet.
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.
Traditional customs, such as local beer tasting and hand-washing are observed and the atmosphere is accentuated by Ndebele song, dance and culture.
A feast of nightly entertainment incorporates Amakwezi traditional dancers, singers, a local story teller and a Sangoma (traditional healer). After dinner, guests are invited to join in the drumming extravaganza. This is the highlight of the evening and all are invited to participate in the drumming and dancing show with their renowned drummers – Amazulu.
The drumming and entertainment show is an interactive one - great for the kids!
Guests should dress casually and bring along light but warm clothing for the months of May, June, July and August.
