Really was an average experience to be frank and kind of out of the way as well. Having visited Nairobi National Museum and Elephant Orphanage I would recommend these sites to someone out enjoying a day in Nairobi.

At Bomas you get to experience several different traditional dance performances. There may have been 8-10 different performances. With each dance there was some background information provided which was helpful. Afterwards you can tour traditional living accommodations of the many tribes.

Great cultural experience, though it might have been nice to have a guide. Leave plenty of time to work around all of the villages and see the show!
