Kisumu has a population of approximately 160,000. The town
was originally founded as the inland railhead of the East
African Railway in 1901. Kisumu had been a busy port town
since its early days, but the break up of the East African
Community in 1977 coupled with the cessation of
international ferry services on the lake substantially
slowed the town's once bustling pace.
Kisumu boasts some interesting sites in addition to Lake
Victoria. Impala Park is a game sanctuary and animal
orphanage and home to the rare sitatunga antelope. Hippo
Point is famed as an exceptional vantage point for viewing
hippo, not to mention Lake Victoria's spectacular sunsets.
Also of interest is the Kisumu Musuem which features a
display of local traditional customs and crafts. Outside
there is a Luo homestead consisting of the husband's mud and
thatch home and separate houses for each wife.
The Kisumu market, one of the busiest and largest in Kenya,
provides a fascinating glimpse into the day to day existence
of the peoples of Western Kenya. Kisumu is probably the best
