Boma Willow Screen
A Boma, the Zulu word for “protected meeting place” was traditionally an area surrounded by tightly bound sticks and dead-fall and held together with leather or grass bindings. Boma screens were designed to protect people and their cattle from predators and poachers.
Safari’s Boma Screens just hint at the functionality of their namesake. These are made from thin willow twigs of varying diameters and lengths that are then bound together.
