Our driver recommended we visit here and I’m so glad we did. Very good value for money. We took about an hour to have a look at the different houses with a guide from the Bomas. He explained the interesting bits and guided us the the different styles. This was good because there are lots to look at and we wouldn’t have wanted to go around all of them!

Next was the dancing which was lovely. It was even better to be amping Kenyan people and school children who were evidently enjoying a day out too.

We really enjoyed seeing some of the cultural variety and it was a contrast to all the wildlife focussed activity we had already done.

I would definitely return if I was in Nairobi and would recommend to all ages.

Thank Joliday
