Starlit Boma Dinner Experience

The traditional African starlit Boma is nestled within the surrounding bush, merely footsteps away from the lodge.

Breathing flames, the Boma reflects memories of the ancient world of African folk and their way of life. Boma, meaning Kraal in Swahili, forms an enclosure, usually made from latte sticks, for camps and fortified villages during the 18th and 19th century, when tribal wars and colonial conquests were common. Savour a four course dinner, beside an ancient Marula tree, prepared on an open fire and enjoyed beneath starlit skies. This African sky theme is a sensory experience, during an enchanting dinner, as guests enter an old ancient African world.

The Boma, surrounded by ancient bush, is the ideal setting for relaxing and toasting to a sumptuous experience. Every detail is carefully planned to create an authentic African ambience, from the atmospheric torch candles, to elephant skulls mysteriously lit beneath them. Thrilling lion roars echoing from the Lionspruit Reserve very nearby, are often heard during Boma Dinners. Buck, warthog and zebra frequently cross the torch lit path leading to the Boma.
