“AWSOME AWSOME AWSOME”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Instead of going to the crocodile center, PLEASE think about going to this. Bomas (home-stay) of Kenya was the greatest experience we had in Nairobi, bar the safari of course. The dancers and the musicians are INCREDIBLE, definitely would recommend it to everyone.
