The journey takes us through Mumias famous for Nabongo Mumia, Kakamega with the crying stones, Maragoli hills before winding up with lunch at Kisumu and a return back to camp. If you would prefer a chilled day, spend the day swimming and hiking around Che’s Bay.

Day 3: Sumba Island
On this day we start of the day with a hike to the surrounding viewpoints at Che’s Bay. Later in the day sail across to Sumba Island for the night on speedboat. The island is used to differentiate the border between Kenya and Uganda. We also get a chance to try our hand at fishing our dinner out of the lake on the boat ride to the island.

Day 4: Lake Kanyaboli, Siaya
In the morning we head back to Che’s Bay. After lunch we drive to Lake Kanyaboli at the heart of Siayakababa. This lake is an important reserve that forms part of Yala swamp and the mouth of Rivers Nzoia and Yala. It is the largest ox bow lake in Africa. Kayaking & water beds are some of the watersports that you can enjoy.

Day 5: Takawiri Island

In the evening we will have a New Year’s cross over party at the shores with a Dj on the House. It’s also full moon night on the Island.

Day 6: Rusinga Island
Today we leave Takawiri Island back to Rusinga to camp on the island at Victoria Sands Lodge. The waters of Mbita are blue and clean like the sea. Spend the afternoon relaxing at the hotel and enjoying a swim in the pool. The sunsets from Mbita are amazing.

Day 7: Rusinga Island & Mbita
On this day explore Rusinga Island’s attractions. A historical trip down to Tom Mboya’s mausoleum is a great way to start the day. Later on enjoy the watersports at the lodge or head out to the beach in Mbita for a swim. Its the perfect day to rest after an eventful trip.
