Wildlife Safari

Ruma National Park, outside Homa Bay is a remote and seldom visited park. In fact, visitors here often have the whole park to themselves.

In the thick bush of Ruma, two very rare species of antelope are found, the large Roan and the tiny Oribi. There are also rare Rothschilds Giraffe and Jackson’ Hartebeest.

Private transport is needed to access and explore the Park, and some of the island lodges can organize safaris.

Just outside Kisumu, a sanctuary has been created for several large populations of Impala.

The three islands of Mfangano, Rusinga and Takawiri are all peaceful natural havens, with hippos wallowing offshore, Vervet monkeys and monitor lizards on the shore, and fish eagles soaring overhead. The island lodges organize nature and bird walks.

From Rusinga it is possible to visit MBasa and Mholo Islands, both of which are breeding colonies for waterfowl. The sheer volume of birdlife on the islands is staggering. A sunset boat trip through the channel is an unforgettable experience. The air is alive with thousands of birds on the wing as you drift under trees with branches sagging with perched birds.

The sunset turns the sky to rich warm gold as more and more birds pour in across the lake to roost, and the first glow of the Kapenta boats spread out across the Lake.
