Festivals around National Holidays
In Kenya, National Public Holidays are important occasions for local residents who come from all corners and usually attend in large numbers. The principal reason for most of them is the entertainment which is both directed to the public and largely to the President and Political Leaders in attendance. Presentations of Traditional Dancers and acrobatics, Poetry and music, plays and skits, the armed forces, Police, Navy and air force, local choirs from schools and other government and non goverment institutions. The events are usually held at the Nairobi based Sports Stadiums or at the Uhuru Gardens near the CBD. Such public Holidays include

12 Nov 2011 It was more than I expected. I was able to see the big 5 and experience the Masai culture.
06 Aug 2011 This was an excellent opportunity to see the city which I would not have felt safe enough to do myself. An experience with the locals could have been disastrous but turned into a highlight! Jimmy, the tour leader, was courteous and knowledgeable
19 Jun 2010 Jimmy was a great guide and I've already recommended him to other travellers. It was a great opportunity to get out and walk around without feeling threatened at all. Seeing the Masai market was a real highlight. Thanks.
04 Apr 2010 This was an excellent introduction to Nairobi - great experience using the public transport especially! My guide was knowledgeable and I felt relaxed and comfortable the whole time. I've never been on a tour that makes you feel like one of the locals instead of a 'tourist'.
