Rather touristic experience with some traditional dances and lots of traditional Kenyan houses to look at.

Nice afternoon spent admiring the traditional dances of different ethnic groups. Nice visit also to the different types of house of several different ethnic groups!

I would recommend this place mainly for that person who really likes the African cultural experience: lots of dance and African dishes available

Our visit started at 3:30 as part of a day tour, where we watched the different cultural dances until 5pm. One has to be attentive though because they will explain the dances shortly before each one. When we all started filing out of the auditorium, we got to explore the gardens with signs and miniature versions of the different typical designs of the living quarters of the different tribes. Our guide Irene of Samson Safaris was amazing in showing us around, but I would recommend buying the guidebook sold at the auditorium during the dances, and going around with it to help understand better each Boma if you are alone. We ended closing the place at about 6pm. This was the highlight of our day and I highly recommend it!
