This includes the cultures of the communities of Kenya. The word Boma is Swahili for homestead thus Bomas of Kenya can literally be translated to ‘homesteads of Kenya.’
It is also a conference centre which occasional hosts both local and international meetings. It is famous for the making of the current Constitution of the republic of Kenya.
This village is located on Langata road just a few meters from the main entrance to the Nairobi National park. It is just over 10 kilometers from the city centre thus can be accessed within few minutes of leaving the city centre if traffic is clear.
