Bomas of Kenya was established by the government in 1971 as a subsidiary company of Kenya Tourist Development Corporation as a tourist attraction. It also wanted to preserve, maintain and promote rich and diverse cultural values of various tribal groups 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 almost all of the 42 tribes, coming together from diverse cultural backgrounds.
Bomas is a homestead and is located just 12 kilometers from the city centre with numerous homesteads reflecting Kenya’s cocktail of cultures depicting in a traditional village lifestyle.
There are replica homesteads of different tribes built in the compound where visitors can visit after the show.

Enjoy the rich traditional dances, villages and handicrafts displayed at the Bomas of Kenya and view numerous homesteads reflecting Kenya’s cocktail of cultures which have been faithfully re-created for visitors to see traditional village life.
