Located in the gorgeous Animal Kingdom Lodge, Boma is decorated by a thatched roof, warm lighting, and vibrant ceiling tapestries. The decor is as colorful, as the various African tastes that beckon you to sample them.
Our VERY knowledgeable dinner server, Maureen, was able to describe the various food options in great detail. When asked about the large selection of African wines, and she suggested I order a "wine flight." Not being an expert on libations, she explained that this would include 3-ounce pours from three various wines. I ordered the "red wine flight," which was only $9 and added up to about 1.5 glasses. The glasses came on a placemat that described their various origins and tastes. All three were quite good, but I really enjoyed the very mild Brampton.
Finally, we were off to attack the buffet. Our goal was to try a bit of EVERYTHING. My taste sensory was truly on overload. Some of the food did have very strong flavors (watch out for the cilantro chili salad dressing! Peanut rice?). I love trying new things, so this was a great experience for me. There are some "neutral" options for those (understandably) less daring (i.e. salmon, rotisserie chicken, and prime rib). There is also a kid’s menu consisting of pasta and meatballs, fries, and chicken strips.
The dessert options are truly out of this world. There was a very large selection. A great thing was that the desserts were in small portions, which maximizes your ability to try as many different ones as possible! The Zebra Domes are the standout favorite, but I don't want to give to much away.
If you enjoy distinct tastes and trying new things, you will love this restaurant, and the price is right.

Boma offers a special "house" juice during brunch. Instead of just plain orange juice, they mix a variety of four juices together. Very tasty and not too sweet. They had a great selection of brunch items. A traditional omelet station was available but the line was constantly quite long. A traditional carving station with ham and beef, as well as typical scrambled eggs, sausage, and bacon, were available as well. All the items were incredibly fresh and high-quality.
I veered towards some of the unknown dishes. They served a few "African" egg and potato dishes that I suggest trying. I don’t know all of what was in them, but they had amazing seasonings and were not too strong – just very tasteful. When I went for seconds, it was those items that I piled up on.
The restaurant itself is on the ground floor, right next to the pool. You can walk out to view one of the Savanna’s at the lodge after your meal to look for flamingos and giraffes.

Boma offers a wide variety of food that can be found in different countries all over Africa. There is food from Morocco, Egypt, Chad, and many other countries. The waiters and waitresses are dressed in traditional African attire, and many of them speak English as a second language.
When we ate at Boma for my daughter's 10th birthday, we were given a card from all the waiters, waitresses, and chefs signed in over 14 different African languages. All in all, this dining experience is a delight for kids and adults alike.

This is the one place we thought about missing. Friends said it was only good, and they felt it had spice in everything they had. We did not feel that way at all. The food had real flavor! And many dishes had no spice at all. We will be returning, and it's outside the park, so we can go on an off-park day and enjoy.
