Bomas of Kenya is a tourist village in Langata, Nairobi. Bomas (homesteads) displays traditional villages belonging to the several Kenyan tribes.

It 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.

The institution is located 10 Kms from the capital city. This means it is very accessible from the many international hotels and conference facilities in Nairobi. The fact that is near the major international and local airports- Jomo Kenyatta and Wilson Airport means it also very accessible to international and domestic tourists. It is also located next to the game filled Nairobi National Park. Thus one can combine cultural-wildlife-town tour circuits.
