Stayed at Lokuthula lodges in Zimbabwe. Boma was walking distance from our lodge. Locals n staff at the lodge were very friendly. Dinner at the Boma was booked n we enjoyed the atmosphere n had an exciting time having a go on the drums. The drum band was superb. There was a variety of food for all tastes

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at the Boma. The food was very good, and there was a large variety to offer something for everyone in the group whether an adventurous eater or not. I especially liked the eland and the kudu. The entertainment was top-notch too, especially the drum-along. Participating in the drumming was a highlight of the evening. The face painting was a nice touch to cap off a wonderful experience.

The atmosphere is really nice- makes you feel like you are in an African village. Food is typical buffet although the grilled meats are really very good. Highlight is the drum session. Everyone young and old are given drums and are lead as a group in a lively arrangement followed by dancing. I usually dislike this kind of thing but we had a great time and glad we did it!

Even though I am from SA, this was an amazing experience and a true display of African cuisine. The drumming show rounded off the evening perfectly.

This was recommended and clearly many were enjoying the night when we arrived. Maybe I'm getting sceptical but to us it seemed very touristy with staff who'd seen it all before and were lacking in true enthusiasm from the dancers, servers & drummers. The food too was mass produced without too much attention to detail, except the puddings which were tasty! Maybe good for the younger generation, but too noisy & crowded for us!
