About
The Bomas of Kenya is a cultural centre at Langata, near the main gate to Nairobi National Park. The talented resident artistes perform traditional dances and songs taken from the country's  various tribal groups, including Arab-influenced Swahili taarab music, Kalenjin warrior dances, Embu drumming and Kikuyu circumcision ceremonies. It's touristy, of course, but it's still a spectacular afternoon out.

What to expect
  • Meet a driver at your Nairobi hotel for your private journey to Bomas of Kenya, a cultural center by the entrance to Nairobi National Park. With access to the grounds, you are able to explore a series of traditional villages that have been recreated onsite, visiting small local houses to get a glimpse of daily life in rural Kenya. The word “Bomas” comes from the Swahili expression for an enclosed homestead—like the clusters of homes that the cultural center highlights as the heart of traditional life in Kenya. Interpreters from around the country help share some of Kenya’s many cultures, including Kalenjin, Kikuyu, and Embu. See those cultures in living color at a vibrant performance that recreates some of each one’s most distinctive songs, dances, and ceremonies. At the end of your time at Bomas of Kenya, meet your driver for the return trip to your hotel, where this tour concludes.

We enjoyed our first trip in Kenya. Bomas of Kenya is a great museum to get to know about the different tribes, the history and culture of Kenya. Our excellent guide Victor explained everything very well and also pointed out some interesting sights while in the car. The traditional dance show at Bomas is also very interesting. Victor was very pleasant company and fulfilled even a special request we had.
