The boma provides the perfect meeting place for guests to enjoy drinks around the fire before dinner or to simply unwind at the end of a wonderful day. The resident chef specializes in mouth-watering venison and game dishes. Meals can be enjoyed in the main dining room or, weather permitting, under the African stars in the boma or on the swimming pool deck…
