African Boma experience (place of eating)
A dining experience second to none in a traditional Boma, best translated as a traditional meeting place, where senior tribe/community members would traditionally get together for the "Kgotla" or meeting. Typically traditional food dishes would be served during or after these get-togethers in the Boma.
The Boma has two entrances, one more hidden than the other to ensure the safe passage of tribe elders or the chief should any threat arise. The Boma offers spectacular vistas of the African night skies, through the silhouettes of Camel Thorn trees and Acacia nigrescens, which have been incorporated into the design.
