220629 - Avani Victoria Falls Boma Dinner


Guests at Avani Victoria Falls Resort can immerse themselves in a truly Zambian dining tradition during a boma dinner at the resort’s African restaurant, Mukuni Boma. Sit under the stars, lounge fireside with a Zambian feast, enjoy live bands, traditional dancing and ground yourself to the beautiful Zambian rituals on the banks of the majestic Zambezi River.



Dining under glow


The setting of the boma dinner depicts a Zambian village where guests sit under the stars and lounge fireside for an authentic boma meal, which is a traditional, open-air African dinner. When walking into the Mukuni Boma, guests are greeted by the tastes, sights, sounds and smells of Africa before being seated and invited to taste the local brew. A four-course menu consisting of Pan African food and game meat on barbeque is then served. An indigenous Zambian dish sure to delight guests is Chikanda, a snack prepared with a tuber of chikanda orchids. The small-sized tubers are dried and pounded, and then combined with a thick mixture of peanuts and dry chili peppers. Chikanda is often referred to as African polony, because of its meat-like consistency. Ifisashi is another popular Zambian meal made with peanuts, tomatoes, onions, and greens such as pumpkin leaves, sweet potato leaves, spinach and collard greens. The ingredients are cooked until the peanut sauce achieves a desired, thick consistency.



The real fun begins after dinner as guests are treated to an interactive traditional African drum show and performances. Traditional singers, djembe drum performers and expert Amakhezi traditional dancers spark the night with vibrant and energetic songs and dance. The engaging and welcoming atmosphere means guests can fully take part in the evening’s festivities by joining the dance and beating the drums to create an unforgettable experience.



Beauty close to the edge


Avani Victoria Falls Resort is situated in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park and offers unmatched encounters with the majestic and spectacular Victoria Falls and Zambia’s amazing wildlife. With complimentary and unlimited access to Victoria Falls, guests at the resort can witness one of nature’s greatest treasures throughout their stay. Columns of spray can be seen from miles away and a selection of clearly marked pathways take visitors to different sections of the falls, including vantage points where views of the Eastern Cataract and the Main Falls as well as the Boiling Pot where the river heads down the Batoka Gorge are merely several metres away. 



Adventures of a lifetime 


The resort’s strategic location and eclectic environment mean the possibilities of recreational activities are endless. Guests can lift their spirit with a scenic adventure on one of the resort’s helicopters tours or microlight flights and marvel at the incredible power of the falls from a different perspective. The exquisite tranquility of the river and the exhilarating thrill of authentic Africa can be experienced by canoeing through the Zambezi River. Rare sights of birds and river wildlife can be spotted as visitors raft down the Zambezi and explore quiet channels. A visit to the historic Livingstone Island provides a one-of-a-kind swim at what feels like the edge of the world in the Devil’s Pool. Panoramic horseback trails take novice and experienced riders along the striking African Bushveld with the exciting possibility of spotting wildlife.
