See what our guests have to say about our Boma Evening :

Attending a Boma evening at Crocodile Kruger Safari Lodge. 4th June 2015.

“At sunset we heard the sound of drums calling us to the Boma. Upon arrival there we were greeted by a very friendly girl who assisted us with a ritual hand washing. She supplied water with a fresh tinge of lemon to wash with in a pottery bowl. Then we proceed into the boma where a big bonfire greeted us.

What a beautiful and welcoming sight. We then each were given a mug of home brewed beer. There was a long table and all were seated; smelling a tantaling aroma of freshly baked bread in the clay oven. The ambience was subtle with candles and firelight, to set a rustic and African mood. Then a surprise was announced ! Anyone brave enough to eat a Mopani worm, would get a congratulary certificate. And many did, and even enjoyed it; to much merriment.

Then came the very appetizing buffet type meal of traditional African dishes. We really found the whole event very different and like an adventure into an African life style. We can recommend this African experience to anyone and everyone, with an adventurous spirit.”
