Saw Lake Victoria , from the Jetty ! No thanks to the infestation caused by Water Hyacinthe , it was impossible to actually on the Lake. 1 or 2 of the boatman with motor launches were demanding a huge price 'per hour' to take us out on the Lake in the middle of the afternoon. So although a great view... More

We went for a boat ride to find the Hippos and we saw about 7 of them including a baby Hippo. Also great bird viewing place including a Fish Eagle. After the boat we spent over 3 hours just relaxing at the "Beach Restaurant" having the standard menu Tilapia and Ugali.

It is quite a motorbike ride to get there and it is not like really awesome but it has a real African feeling which makes it worth a visit! Tilapia & Ugali and the lakeside restaurant tastes superb!!

Loved the place! We took a boat from Hippo Point, and Titus who owned tha boat showed us a lot of animal life, hippo and a lot of different birds together with big lizards. Dunga bay is a must if you are in Kisumu!

Very beautiful place to visit. The fish is very good as well as the people in this are. Transport is not expensive, charges can be as low as KES 250. Should you want to stay until late then it's best if you organize for your own personal transport.

This place is further up from the yacht club and formerly an old quarry but transformed into a nice restaurant with Mara type sleeping camps and there is also a small swimming pool here. We went on the lake here with the local fisherman in their wooden canoes. This place is right on the lake and is beautiful. Nice food

This is a great place to spend a lazy day at the lake. Have a cold beer at the local bar or go on a boat tour in lake Victoria. Enjoy beautiful nature and hakuna matata lifestyle.
