Boma Dinners Details

An unforgettable dining experience under the stars

Boma dinners at Kings Camp Private Game Reserve are more than just a meal; they are an immersive experience that blends luxury, tradition, and the atmospheric evenings in the bush. Set under the thatched Boma beneath the starlit sky, these dinners are a celebration of the senses, offering a unique opportunity to savour the flavours of African-inspired cuisine while surrounded by the sounds of the bushveld.

The Lantern Lit Setting

Upon returning from the sunset game drive and after a quick freshen up, guests are escorted to the boma, an open-air enclosure traditionally used in African culture. The word “boma” refers to a livestock enclosure but has evolved to describe a special place for gatherings of all kinds. At Kings Camp, the boma is encircled by a wall of natural materials lit by lanterns, with a crackling fire at its heart. The firelight creates an inviting atmosphere, perfect for an evening of camaraderie and culinary delights.

The Culinary Journey: Flavours of South Africa

The menu at a boma dinner is a showcase of South African-inspired cuisine. Each dish is crafted using fresh, locally-sourced ingredients, bringing the traditions and flavours of our country to life. Guests can expect a variety of traditional dishes such as:

  • Braai (Barbecue): A selection of succulent meats, including beef, lamb, and chicken, grilled to perfection over an open flame.
  • Potjiekos: A slow-cooked stew made with tender meats and seasonal vegetables, simmered in a cast-iron pot.
  • Freshly Baked Bread: Homemade bread and rolls, perfect for soaking up the rich sauces and gravies.
  • Vegetarian and vegan options are also available, ensuring that every guest can enjoy the diverse and delicious offerings of our Boma evening.

The Experience: More Than a Meal

While the food is undoubtedly a highlight, the boma dinner experience is enriched by the alfresco setting and the company. Guests, accompanied by their guides, gather around the fire, sharing stories of the day’s adventures over a glass of fine South African wine. The sounds of nightfall – distant roars of lions, the chirping of insects, and the rustling of leaves – provides the soundtrack that enhances the sense of connection to the wilderness.

Personalised Service and Attention to Detail

The staff at Kings Camp are dedicated to providing impeccable service, ensuring that each guest’s needs are met with warmth and professionalism – even in the outdoor setting. From the moment you arrive at the boma, you’ll be discreetly attended to by friendly and knowledgeable staff who are eager to share their passion for the local culture, cuisine and our selection of South African wines.

Toast to Good Memories at Kings Camp

No boma dinner is complete without a toast to the unforgettable memories being created. Guests can enjoy a selection of fine South African wines, local beers, and signature cocktails, expertly paired with the evening’s menu.

Raise a glass to the adventures of the day and the promise of more to come!
