A ‘Boma’ is a homestead and just a few kilometres from Nairobi we have the Bomas of Kenya where the day-to-day lives of the 42 different ethnic groups in Kenya are depicted through traditional dancing, music, song and folklore. These plus an acrobatic show are performed in a splendid arena.
Nairobi has many restaurants offering a wide variety of cuisine. We recommend a dinner or lunch at the Carnivore, which is famous for its succulent steaks and barbecue, dishes including game meat and is therefore dubbed ‘the meat eaters’ paradise. The restaurant also offers a vegetarian menu; the meal is an excellent complement to a holiday especially as a welcome or farewell dinner. The cost includes transfers to and from Nairobi City Centre.
Drive towards Ngong Hills by passing the Ngong village to the Karen Blixen Museum of the ‘Out of Africa’ fame, which was for many years her home. Later proceed to the Giraffe Centre to view and feed the famous Rothschild’s giraffe which is an endangered species from a specially constructed viewing-platform.
The tour covers the modern city Centre, the National Museum and the adjacent Snake Park, Parliament Buildings, the Railway Museum where old steam locomotives are exhibited including the one from which Superintendent John Lyall was taken from by a man-eating lion in Tsavo in 1901. You will also visit the city market where a wide variety of African curios and tropical fruit and flowers are on sale, ending with a visit to the Kenyatta International Conference Centre view-point which has a revolving restaurant.
This unique wildlife sanctuary is just a few kilometres from Nairobi’s bustling city Centre but despite its proximity over 50 species of mammals can be found there including four of the ‘big five’. As an option, you can visit the animal orphanage where wounded or orphaned animals are nurtured back to health. The tour returns to the city Centre by sundown.
