    Bomas of Kenya
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    Your tour starts by pick you from your Nairobi Hotel or accommodation at 1pm. Here you will experience the rich culture of Kenya’s 42 different ethnic groups as they live on their day-to-day basis. This is clearly demonstrated through traditional dances, music, song, and folklore. There is a splendid arena where acrobatic shows are performed. The Bomas of Kenya put on displays of traditional dancers and spread over many acres, it also has a wonderful display of mud huts and traditional Kenyan homesteads. The Bomas of Kenya is the ideal place to bring energetic children as they can freely run in and out of the traditional houses & mud huts, climb up ladders and generally have a wonderfully active time. These traditional houses are set out in clusters according to the region. The homes are grouped with the first wife's hut, second wife's hut, granary etc and you can see where the livestock are kept and the enormous variety between the huts. Bomas of Kenya was initiated in 1971 after Kenya's independence (1964) and it is run by the Kenyan Government and aims to promote Kenya's rich cultural heritage. In addition to the main attractions (the dancers and the traditional homesteads), there is also a large, wooden play area for young children, a small, low-key village of craft shops and other attractions.

A must visit experience in Nairobi to the Bomas with the display of 23 African Tribal homes from Kenya learning about their Culture and afterwards the splendid varied and entertaining Tribal Dances from many regions of Kenya was captivating to watch.

I enjoyed my experience visiting the village and then the Bomas of Kenya. My driver Francis was very informative on sharing his knowledge on Nairobi. And as a bonus because of a traffic jam he took me through Kibera area also known as the slums.
Asante sana Francis.

Francis was available to take us on a journey booked only one hour before start time. The Bomas are all similar in that the have a husband quarters, 1st wife, 2nd wife, 3rd wife, married son, unmarried son, and granaries. The difference is in the construction, using the materials found locally, whether thatched, or stone, or all mud walls and roofs. The dancing exhibitions of the different regions was fun to watch.

Very educational to see how each tribe lived - you get to see their houses and set-up - however you have to imagine what the people looked like and how they might have gotten on with their daily lives - make sure you take someone along as its very quiet there and one can easily get bored -

Thanks disoricass for giving us chance to serve you. Its a great idea understanding traveling with company's driver is more safer than a taxi and in case you forget your luggage in the car you will still find it. We look forward to meeting you again in the near future

This was a great experience to get a great glimpse of Bomas of Kenya where we got to see how the various tribes in Kenya lived. We got to see some great homesteads and were later treated to a great show of all the dances by different tribes. We had a great guide called Kelvin who was very informative, knowledgable and friendly.
