Visit one of Earth’s great spectacles with your family - The Victoria Falls, dubbed as Africa’s adventure capital. Victoria Falls presents a spectacular sight of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur on the Zambezi River, forming the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. It was described by the Kololo tribe living in the area in the 1800s as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ – ‘The Smoke that Thunders’. In more modern terms Victoria Falls is known as the greatest curtain of falling water in the world.

The Boma – Dinner & Drum Show, which to date more than one million people have enjoyed, has come a long way since its humble beginnings a quarter of a century ago. The Boma was developed after the Lokuthula Lodges were built in 1992, to cater for guests staying at the lodges. As the accommodation was deemed to be out of town, a restaurant was required by Resort Condominium International so that Lokuthula Lodges could obtain affiliation to the largest timeshare network in the world.
As the developers of Lokuthula could not afford to build a restaurant, they instead just built a kitchen and called it a ‘bush’ restaurant. It was a 60-seater eatery and in the beginning the waiters were also the entertainers.
Initially, the restaurant was called The Boma – Place of Eating, but it was re-branded in 2016 to The Boma – Dinner & Drum Show to include the unique entertainment element that has made the experience a Victoria Falls highlight. The re-branding has included a review of the food offering, the entertainment, uniforms and the décor. The changes have made The Boma more contemporary, without losing its traditional feel.
