Meet a driver at your Nairobi hotel for a 1:30 departure to Bomas of Kenya, a cultural center by the entrance to Nairobi National Park. With access to the grounds, you’ll be 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 the driver for the return trip to your hotel, where this tour concludes.
