5/ 5

Bomas of Kenya is a neat spot, with natural vegetation and surrounded by some much-needed calmness. We made a half-day out of our visit there. We started with lunch at the restaurant, then walked around the Bomas, and topped it off with the dancing. Overall it was a really cool experience. Learning about the different types of houses, layouts, construction styles, and materials used by the different tribes is really educational. It is an interesting site that you can visit alone or with a guide. The “villages” were laid out nicely and it was awesome to go inside and imagine living in one as a first wife, of course. I appreciated the description at the entrance to each tribal area describing who in each clan does the building, where this tribe is located, what materials they use, and why they chose the layout that they chose. Our kids LOVED it. They were really excited to see structures built out of mud, sticks, straw, grass, all the natural things they love to play with. They also enjoyed seeing some houses similar to those we have seen during our travels. The dances were really engaging and the acoustics in the auditorium are really good. Hearing the singing, stomping, and catcalling was great. For a long afternoon adventure just outside the city, this is a wonderful place to go, excellent value, and well worth a visit! As a tip, I suggest checking the availability of shows due to the covid regulation. Another tip is to get ready for the mini-market of people who will sell you souvenirs

There is nowhere in Kenya that showcases the different arts and culture of Kenya like the Bomas of Kenya. It’s located some 50 minutes from Nairobi CBD and a cab costs approximately kes 700. If you have a free Saturday and you want to see Kenyan arts and even some cultural performances, this is the place to go. They charge kes 200 for entrance which is fair considering the experience you’ll receive. I have been there a couple of times but the most memorable time was during the Kenya high school music festival. Olga has gone over 100 schools battling it out in songs and dance for the number one school in Kenya! You have to taste almost all the auditoriums where different shows are being performed. They also have a beautiful restaurant even though I think the food is overpriced. It is such a whole sum experience. 10/10 would recommend.
