I applaud and thank the effort to organize and show the cultural richness of the original ethnic groups of Kenya. Perhaps the only improvement would be the appearance and maintenance of the facilities.

It was interesting looking at the display huts but the dance show was boring. Each dance was 10 minutes long and there was a lot of talking in between. I ended up leaving during the show.
