The Boma is a totally touristic place. The atmosphere was very nice and the drum show is very happy. However, the place is very crowded and busy, with very long queues for the foods. If you are vegetarian, the choices are quiet limited. Food quality...More

I paid with a master card both times we visited, no issues there. It is a popular spot, so I would make sure you reserve a spot ahead of time. Specially if you're going in peak season.
