Our traditional boma is a truly memorable way to experience an evening under the African night sky. Fine cuisine and wines can be sampled while sitting near a warm, crackling fire. This is the perfect opportunity to reminisce, share and discuss the days sightings and experiences.
End off the evening with a sumptuous dessert and a nightcap before bidding farewell to the simmering fire to the calling of your suite.
New in 2018 is the introduction of an underground hide for those low angle shots of elephants, giraffe, zebra, buffalo, kudu, impala etc as they bend down to drink at the waterhole.
