Our day will begin at the Kisumu museum. Here, exhibitions focus on the natural and cultural history of Western Kenya and the lake regions respectively. It features a collection of local flora and fauna, as well as a traditional Luo homestead. There is also a snake park in the museum, traditional Luo homestead where you can learn and experience more about the Luo traditions.
From museum, we will drive to Kisumu Impala Park. This is a holding area for wildlife, which require special protection in this densely populated area. Impala Park Kisumu focuses on a small herd of impalas, while the animal orphanage contains a collection of caged Lions, leopard, baboon, Spotted Hyena, jackal, buffalo, cheetah, bushbuck, and Syke’s monkey. The park also provides important open grazing for the local hippo population while the threatened Sitatunga antelope is believed to exist in the nearby swamps. Being a shady and peaceful place, the birdlife here is amazing and for those who enjoy some quality and quite moments, Impala Park makes an ideal place.
From the park we will drive for lunch at Dunga Beach followed by a boat ride to get a first-hand experience of the second largest fresh water lake in the world – Lake Victoria. We will later proceed to the nearby community-owned Dunga Ecotourism boardwalk in the swamp where you can experience more birdlife especially the biome restricted and the papyrus endemics of Lake Victoria. We will later visit the fishing village where you will encounter the local anglers and fishmongers. You will get to interact with the anglers to learn the secrets of their trade, which is their lifeline for sustainability. We will drive back to the city and transfer you to your residence.
