Bomas of Kenya

Bomas of Kenya is a great place to see and learn tit bits about Kenyan culture. The dance routines are great and the performers appear to really enjoy themselves.

Bomas is a tourist village in Langata, Nairobi. Bomas displays traditional villages belonging to the several Kenyan tribes.

However, the best part is the model village setting where you can learn about how each tribe live.

A truly learning experience and must see for anyone even remotely interested in Kenyans rather than just the wildlife.

The two things to do in Bomas were

1. Look at the various African huts and

2. Watch the African dancing.

The huts are OK but very repetitive as there is a village for almost every tribe in Kenya and some from the surrounding countries. They look a lot alike.

The Acrobats in the dancing were awesome and it was interesting to watch some of the other cultural dancing too.

It was disappointing to watch the whole show in a huge, almost empty auditorium.

This was on a weekend too. They need to make a smaller venue so that when crowds are low it feels more hospitable.

Common sense for this attraction is: Go if you are interested in the cultural dancing. Avoid if you are just looking for something to do, there are better Nairobi attractions.
