Hippo Point Kisumu – Gives outstanding reasons to sway away from the sweltering heat and the bustling city of Kisumu. The views across the lake are breathtaking and this makes Hippo Point as an amazing location to chill out and spend the day on a paced down mode.
The almost 600 acres viewing area on the shores of Lake Victoria is very welcoming and so is a must visit if you happen to be in Kenya’s lakeside city. With a better confusing name, Hippo Point is well known for its unobstructed sunsets over the lake than for its occasional hippos.
As the name goes, it’s somehow deceptive and it’s worth to accept that – there aren’t as many hippos as possible to spot or enjoy watching. People come here for a relaxation and the cool lake breeze. If you’re there for the evening, the view of the setting sun over the world’s second largest water body, Lake Victoria. If time and the prevailing winds permit, you could venture further and jump into a couple of boats available for a sunset cruise. What a spectacular moment!
The sunset cruise moments could be dotted with some birds flying to their roosting sites, a take off or a landing at the Kisumu international airport across, hippos wallowing in the open golden-tinged waters of Lake Victoria. We could also just spend time to enjoy the Hippo Point cuisine and this is something very great if you are interested to taste the lakeside delicacies.
Apart from the organized boat trips, the moods can get a little jovial with some local music being played and this helps to unite merry-makers, friends and foe alike as they find the best getaway spot in the city’s outskirts to converge for the day’s great moments.
Hippo Point is the ideal place to visit when you wish to let go of your monotonous life and enjoy the company of nature and the cool breeze. It is the place where you can catch up with your inner self and enjoy in the company of friends and family.
