Bomas of Kenya
Kenya is a nation rich in culture, which is being threatened by increasing modernity. To combat the loss of this rich heritage, the Bomas of Kenya has put together a series of tribal cultural shows geared towards promoting her rich cultural diversity. It features virtually all of the 42 tribes in the country, coming together from diverse cultural backgrounds.
There are replica homesteads of different tribes built in the compound where visitors can visit after the show.
The traditional dances are performed from Monday to Thursday, from 2.30 pm to 4 pm and on weekends and public holidays, from 3.30 pm to 5.15 pm. These cultural fetes are intended to yield cultural ambassadors from virtually all the tribes in the country, who promote Kenya’s rich culture beyond borders showcasing a rich array of artistic talent.
The performances by the talented resident artistes include Arab influenced Swahili taarab music, Kalenjin warrior dances, Kikuyu circumcision ceremonies and Embu drumming.
