The Boma Restaurant offers guests an authentic tribal Dinner & Drum show which is a legendary blend of exuberant entertainment, mouthwatering African cuisine and a fascinating insight into the unique cultural heritage of the local people.
The evening starts with a hand-washing ceremony before guests are invited to sample a selection of traditional beer and snacks. Then it’s time to tuck into à la carte starters and a four-course buffet-style meal with a choice of delicious Zimbabwean dishes and a variety of meat.
Try local delicacies such as mopani worms, venison potjie (pot stew), warthog steak and spit roast served with peanut butter rice and sadza (thick maize-meal porridge which is part of the nation’s staple diet).
The evening turns festive when traditional dancers entertain everyone with wildly enthusiastic traditional songs and dancing. Get involved and get drumming on a traditional djembe drum. The interactive drumming session starts at 20h45 and is the highlight of the evening.
The restaurant’s traditional storyteller regales enlightening stories to explain the country’s folklore, culture and heritage while a mysterious witchdoctor does the rounds; throwing the bones and reading your future. You can also have your hair braided or your face painted. A group of acapella singers serenade you as the glorious evening winds down.
An onsite shop sells traditional accessories to take home as a wonderful memory of your evening at The Boma Restaurant and you can purchase a DVD which is a compilation of the night’s entertainment.
