Natural Rock Boma

Sediba’s latest stylish addition is a unique Natural Rock Boma recently opened at ‘Rock Lodge’ Letlapa. Boma’s are usually constructed with wooden poles, but this boma is made with gigantic rocks weighing between 3.000 and 4.000 kilo a piece found in the direct natural surroundings of the lodge.

The impressive structure of solid rock walls combined with spectacular light, smoke and fire effects, provide the illusion dining in a cave starlit by the African sky. An experience that is one-of-a-kind to be exclusively enjoyed at Sediba.
