enjoying the silence of a hidden paradise at the lake together with local tourists

Personal highlights

  1. Dunga beach: hidden paradise in the south of Kisumu, but no real beach
  2. Dunga hill: camping ground with a decent bar and some view over lake Victoria
  3. Fish market: watching locals selling and cooking fresh tilapia fish from the lake
  4. Hippo tour: taking a small wooden boat to visit the hippos at hippo point 
  5. Visitors: quite a busy tourists spot - but mostly for local Kenyan tourists!
