Kisumu - Kenya

The name Kisumu comes from ‘Adhi Kisuma’ meaning ‘I am going to trade’ as the town in its early days after European settlement attracted the local Luo tribe to trade.

Kisumu is Kenya’s third largest town and it’s located on the shores of Lake Victoria, Africa’s largest lake and the source of the Nile, the world’s longest river. It is an excellent starting point to explore west Kenya. This area of Kenya doesn’t see many tourists, but avid bird watchers, butterfly enthusiasts, and primate lovers will certainly enjoy what western Kenya has to offer.

The town is a hive of activity, socially and economically, but still keeps a pleasant and laid back feel aboit it. It offers the visitor a good look at life on the great lake, as well as ample opportunities o take advantage of the lake shores.
