Boma Dinner & Drum Show

Last updated: 04 April, 2024

This vibrant restaurant ticks all the right tourist boxes, from colourful African décor and crackling fires to beaming waiters and cold beers. The menu is focused on meaty barbecue fare; brace yourself to taste your way through Zambezi bream, crocodile tail, guinea fowl, warthog and impala.

But people really come for the entertainment – with singers and dancers ensuring a drum-banging, foot-stomping good time. It’s bright, brash and ridiculously popular.

When to do it

It operates all year round, seven days a week. The whole experience lasts 3 hours, from 7pm-10pm. Go at 6pm and request a front-row table.
