The Victoria Falls is 1 708 meters wide, making it the largest curtain of water in the world. It drops between 90m and 107m into the Zambezi Gorge and an average of 550,000 cubic metres of water plummet over the edge every minute.
If you are planning a trip to Victoria Falls, be sure to book in advance for the most unusual, entertaining, dining experience in town.
The Boma – Dinner & Drum Show, is so much more than just a dinner – it’s a whole evening of entertainment featuring energetic dance performances, lively songs, story-telling, face painting and an incredible interactive drumming show. It is a celebration of Zimbabwe.
From the moment guests arrive at seven o’clock, they are immersed in the vibrant atmosphere. Tantalising aromas of local dishes and game meat on the barbeque fill the restaurant, which is partially open to the surrounding forest and the night skies. Staff members are warm and hospitable, offering traditional delicacies to guests as they enjoy the warm African evening.
The Boma tells a story about the food and culture of Zimbabwe, about African hospitality and generosity. Share a starter platter of skewered peppered impala, smoked crocodile tail, corn ciabatta and “nyimo” fritters. The Boma is known for its local Zimbabwean delicacies, such as mopane worms, warthog steak and Zambezi bream, as well as beef, pork, chicken and vegetarian dishes, ensuring there is something to suit every palate.
You will be treated to outstanding performances by traditional singers and dancers, and thrilled by a dramatic medicine man who will throw bones for you and tell your fortune. There is also a traditional storyteller who entertains guests with folklore tales. And then the drums are handed out for a grand finale of synchronised drumming – a joyous end to a memorable evening.
