The Government in 1971 at the Langata Forest started the Bomas of Kenya Limited. The Company was established to preserve and promote Kenyan Culture and to do this through cultural entertainments programmes for Tourists visiting Kenya and residents including school children.

How to get to Bomas

It is about 1 km past the main entrance to the Animal Orphanage and Nairobi National Park. Bomas of Kenya is adequately served by public transport i.e. Kenya Bus Services and Nissan Matatus Services. Members of the Public can board the buses at the Central Bus Station in the city center Numbers 125, 126, and 24 service this route.

Performances
The Bomas Harambee Dancers the only resident dance company in Kenya perform daily in a spectacular circular theatre possibly the biggest and unique structure of its kind in Africa which seats 3,500 people. You will have the opportunity of seeing a colourful cross- section of the people of Kenya dancing to the pulsating beat of Coastal drums and other traditional instruments. Dancers from all the tribes in Kenya move across the stage in a vibrant kaleidoscope of rhythm and the hue. Proud Maasai warriors vault skywards as they woo their maidens with chanting and twirling spears.

Traditional Villages

The Word "Bomas " is authentic and African meaning simply "An African Homestead". There are several different Bomas each representing one of Kenya's major ethnic groups and built to the original traditional architecture of an African Home as built by the ancestors. Here, visitors are able to see and experience the rural Kenya life and its social settings.

The Harambee dancers troupe has toured nearly all countries abroad in which they have left a remarkable and entertaining enthusiasm in the minds of the public they entertained. They have now certificates of appreciation for good performances. The impact which Bomas of Kenya has had on their audencies oversees, and the hard work the dancers have put into each tour has brought about remarkable results in the Tourism Promotion Programmes.
