We arrived at the boma (not to be mistaken for Boma at Animal Kingdom Lodge.) This is right in the middle of the African savanna, where you can see the Kilimanjaro Safari jeeps. Thia is a covered, animal viewing area. There are nice bathrooms, table and chairs to eat at, binoculars to use, and great food and juice.
Each guest was presented with their own two-tired, canister-style “camp-tin.” We were on the second tour of the day and were given the breakfast snack. It was very yummy....or at least most of it was.
The bottom layer of the lunchbox held mini pita breads, a fig almond bread, prosciutto, dried beef, and smoked salmon rolled with dill cream cheese atop a cucumber and jicama slaw. Every item was flavorful and fresh. The only thing I did not care for were the dried meats. I gave mine to Paul, as he enjoyed them.
All in all, a very interesting combination of foods, that worked well together. I think my favorite was the yogurt and the fig and almond bread!
There are food alternative options for children, vegetarians, and guests with allergies. These special menus must be ordered in advance, so alert your travel agent when booking the tour so they can relay this information for you.
I hope you enjoyed this weeks trip in the Way Back Machine! Join us next week, as we travel back in time to, who knows when?
