Really was an average experience to be frank and kind of out of the way as well. Having visited Nairobi National Museum and Elephant Orphanage I would recommend these sites to someone out enjoying a day in Nairobi.

At Bomas you get to experience several different traditional dance performances. There may have been 8-10 different performances. With each dance there was some background information provided which was helpful. Afterwards you can tour traditional living accommodations of the many tribes.
