Overview

Ndere Island’s Tranquility – Leaving Kisumu city behind, we will drive through the Luo countryside to the shore of Lake Victoria at Kaloka beach. From here, we will connect your boat for a ride to Ndere Island National Park.

Ndere Island is only 4.2sq km just off the northern shores of Lake Victoria. The park is known for its awesome vistas where on a clear day it’s possible to see Kampala, Uganda.

Ndere means ‘Meeting Place’ in the dialect of the local Luo tribe. In connection to Kit Mikayi Rock, according to Luo folklore, Mikayi – the mother of the tribe, rested up near Ndere after her long journey south down the Nile Valley. She found the lush shoreline so pleasing that she and her people stayed to date.

This tranquil island is home to a variety of birds including Fish Eagles and a dense population of other birds. Hippos, Monitor Lizards, and Crocodiles, including the lesser-known Spotted Crocodiles, are a familiar sight.

Impalas and zebras have been introduced to the grasslands while the woodland which fringes the shores is home to reptiles, more birds, and a plethora of butterflies. For nature lovers, attractions to the island are unlimited from hiking, walking, optional traditional fishing, and optional boat cruising at an additional cost. We will enjoy a picnic lunch before our return boat ride to Kaloka for a further drive to Kisumu stopping on the way at Kit Mikayi. We will later continue with our drive to Kisumu to mark the end of our excursion.
