Most travellers dream of finding a new and unknown destination, somewhere far from the beaten tourist path, where the thrill of real discovery and exploration reward the visitor with new and unexpected experiences, sights and sounds.
While Kenya is known world wide for its excellent Game Parks and Reserves and idyllic tropical beaches, there are large areas of the country that remain largely unknown and seldom visited. Kenya is now encouraging visitors to explore and experience these hidden treasures.

Kisumu Town forms part of the great Western Kenya Tourism Circuit and provides so much more in terms of places to visit, what to see, and activities to do. It is part of the forgotten counties of Kenya with amazing natural, geographical, and cultural diversity, offering you just as much as other tourist sites in Kenya (if not more).
