Stop At: Bomas of Kenya, Langata Rd Mageso Chember, Nairobi 00200 Kenya

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.

Duration: 3 hours

Calvin was an exceptional guide! He was very kind throughout the entire experience and super friendly and knowledgeable. You get to see dances from many different cultures of Kenya. While the dances were great the center where it was held smelled strongly. Other than that it was a pleasant experience and we got to visit the traditional homesteads which were fascinating!

Great show, especially the acrobats at the end. How do they do those things? And the walk through the villages with the guide was super interesting. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Nairobi.

Excellent dancing and drumming show. You need a guide for the Boma exhibition although the displayed information is sufficient for a solo traveller. Sound system for commentary on dancing is useless with too much echo. Even so a great and enjoyable afternoon.
