Revel in an Exciting New Feast of Fun at The Boma – Dinner & Drum ShowBy Africa Albida Tourism
The Boma – Dinner & Drum Show, a “must do” Victoria Falls experience, has just got a lot more bite, with a focus on the refreshment and modernisation of its food and entertainment elements now completed.
Africa Albida Tourism (AAT) chief executive Ross Kennedy said: “Now in its 25th year, The Boma – Dinner & Drum Show has so far hosted more than one million guests. In 2016 alone, over 61,000 visitors to Victoria Falls enjoyed The Boma - Dinner & Drum Show, creating a new record year.
The Boma – Dinner & Drum Show will be officially relaunched at an event, with members of the Zimbabwean travel industry in attendance, on January 23.
The Boma provides a delicious four-course meal, made up of starters, soup from the campfire, a braai (barbecue) buffet, featuring Zimbabwean delicacies such as mopane worms, warthog steak and Zambezi bream, as well as vegetarian dishes, and desserts.
A new chef, rising star Brighton Nekatambe, has been appointed to head The Boma kitchen. Mr Nekatambe joined the hospitality industry through Victoria Falls Safari Lodge’s apprenticeship program from 2005 to 2007, before later leaving to pursue other employment around Zimbabwe and in Europe, and representing the country in three international culinary events.
A drum painting corner has been introduced, where, guests, armed with a paintbrush and under a
tutor’s guidance, may design and paint their own drum, map, bowl or other memorabilia, as a
souvenir of their Boma experience. In addition, a photo booth has also been installed on arrival at The Boma, allowing guests to capture that moment.
Work has also been done to enhance the artistic showmanship of the Boma entertainers.
