Fun night with interactive drums and dancing for everyone. We got there a little bit later so the best of the BBQ meat was gone. Great night for family night out

We had a fantastic time at the Boma dinner and drum show. This was an amazing experience which you won't find anywhere else in the world. You learn how to play a drum, eat traditional food, and even have your hair braided and see a...fortune teller.More

Not at all what I look for in a travel experience. This was more like what I would expect on a cheap cruise or a spring break trip to Mexico. If your idea of fun is doing shots and shaking your booty to the crowd...drumming around you, give it a tryMore

If visiting Victoria Falls please make sure you visit this place! You won't be disappointed. Our tour guide messed up our reservations and we attended the Dinner and Drum Show an hour before it opened. The Staff started early and did everything to accommodate us...as we had little ones with us. Can't thank everyone enough!More

This is a very entertaining show that includes a large buffet with foods you will recognize and some you won’t, complete with dessert. You will have to purchase all beverages and DO NOT drink the water. The food was good but the entertainment is better....If you are in the area, I recommend this show. It’s really good entertainment and lots of fun and audience participation. DO NOT PASS, GO!More

This is a must to go to. Everyone provided with a drum and the beat is incredible. Have your face painted, listen to the Acappella singers and even visit the witch doctor. A fun evening from start to finish.More

…I’d prob’ go for latter. If you’ve ever seen / experienced a n y of the real African interior, this will shock & put you off. Massively fake tourist trap: the desserts & « special drink » (billed extra) were among the most disgusting things I have...ever tasted; the rest of the food, just average at best; the whole, designed to squeeze a few more dollars out of you at every turn, and so at USD 50+20+15 pp. (and I avoided most of the extra bs - this could easily have cost twice as much!), a third-rate Wild West show would probably have been less bad :-(More

This is a tourist trap!!! The food is not good, you are interrupted every 2 mins by a staff member to offer you some kind of activity that you always have to pay for (cocktails, fortune tellers, ...). Overall very expensive for what you get!...The only "nice" thing was the drum & dancing activity.More

I arrived and requested a table without a booking, but I would recommend booking before you go, as we got a table on uneven ground and in an undesirable spot. That was in December, peak season.
