The evening at the Boma was wonderful and breathtaking. I enjoyed the food, especially the vegetarian selection which has improved over the last period i was there which was in February this year. The people are pleasant and the food tasty. I will recommend it.

Wonderful dinner, very interestingly done. Many people, but it did not seem like it as it is well set out. The dancing, singing and drumming show was amazing. The food selection was incredibly interesting.

Had a great night here with an amazingly rhythmic and energetic African Drum performance. The drummers also make the audience engage by giving everyone drums and teaching you some simple beats. There was a buffet with a huge selection of game meat to choose from,...More
