If you want to learn about all the 42 tribes of Kenya, you ought to go to Bomas. Here traditional dances and narrations and showcased in the customary attire. There are also traditional houses of each community and household items. The venue is also used for charity events and live performances.

“Trying local (Kenyan)”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

The eating area is lovely. The view is great, with warthogs roaming. The food was pretty average except for the nyama choma, (barbecued goat meat). That was finger licking good! Sadly it took forever and the food was brought out in dribs and drabs. The cultural dancing was interesting for the kids.
