It was just unusual experience. Eating the wild meat was all of this program. But drum show was good for enjoying.

This was a very good restaurant with fantastic local dishes of game meat as well as traditional western food. The dancers were very entertaining as well and the setting was uniquely attractive.

The Boma is a nice cultural place to hangout especially at night say from 7pm. The drumming is exciting where all gets to drum. The traditional material supplied upon entry to just wrap yourself around has been tradition at the The Boma. I loved it.
