Half Day Bomas of Kenya + Lunch at a famous Meat Eatery
(*Vegetarian option available)
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 Carnivore Restaurant is situated 4 km from the Nairobi City Centre and is a meat speciality restaurant.
Strikingly different from anything ever seen in Nairobi, the Carnivore does not follow the normal restaurant traditions of ordering food from a menu. Guests simply take a seat at the table and the feast begins. Whole joints of meat….legs of lamb and pork, ostrich, rumps of beef, sirloins, racks of lamb, spare ribs, sausages, chicken wings, skewered kidneys and even crocodile, that have been roasted over a huge, charcoal pit until cooked to perfection, are brought to your table by friendly waiters. This “beast of a feast” is preceeded by the soup of the day with home baked brown bread and butter. Accompanying side dishes include a wide selection of salads and vegetable, as well as exotic sauces made from the Carnivore’s own recipes.The feast goes on until guests concede defeat by lowering the white paper flag on the
table, and then dessert and coffee is served.The atmosphere of the restaurant is one of a medieval banqueting hall in a rural setting, and the name Carnivore is synonymous with the “dawa” – their signature vodka cocktail, brought to you by Mr Dawa himself (Dawa in Kiswahili means medicine or magic potion). The dawa is now one of the most widely consumed cocktails in Kenya.
Adjoining the main restaurant is the informal restaurant, the Simba Saloon, where you can order a la carte meals, and which turns into a nightclub when the sun sets.
