The Bomas of Kenya is a cultural Centre at Langata, near the main gate to Nairobi National Park. The talented resident artistes perform traditional dances and songs taken from the country’s various tribal groups, including Arab-influenced Swahili taarab music, Kalenjin warrior dances, Embu drumming and Kikuyu circumcision ceremonies. It’s touristy, of course, but it’s still a spectacular afternoon out.

Afternoon 1:30 pm, pick up from your hotel within Nairobi and drive to the Bomas of Kenya. Bomas of Kenya offers Kenya in miniature! It is a must visit for all visitors. Situated 10km from Nairobi city center, and about 1 km past the main entrance of the game-filled Nairobi National Park, Bomas of Kenya lets you see the wonderful diversity of cultures that make up this fascinating country.

CHECKLIST


Here are some of our recommendations to you for getting through a safari:

  • Plenty of sun protection, lotion or cream (High SPF)
  • A wide-brimmed hat to shade you from the sun, this should have string/straps if standing in the van or jeep as it could be blown off.
  •  A good pair of sunglasses as you are on the equator where the sun is very strong. Prescription sun spectacles are not recommended as may scratch or fall off the vehicles.
  •  Bottle’s or jugs of water to keep you hydrated. Spending a lot of time in the sun, even when wearing hats and sunglasses will dehydrate you in most cases
  • A fleece/jumper/sweater for the early morning (or a safari jacket) and evening game drives, as it tends to get very chilly, especially in the highlands and in the Masai Mara.
  • Shorts and t-shirts or light trousers for the daytime.
  • Long trousers and long or short-sleeved shirts for the evening and protection from mosquitoes
  •  Plenty of film or flash card memory for your camera and a battery charger for all electronic devices.
  •  Swimming costumes/bathing suits as most of the lodges and camps have swimming pools.
  •  A good pair of binoculars (there’s usually just one pair in vehicles).
  •  A pair of safari shoes or trekking boots.
  • A pack of wet wipes.
  •  Mosquito repellent.
