Set on the shore of Lake Victoria, the largest freshwater lake in Africa, the Kisumu Impala Sanctuary is a peaceful, relaxing place to enjoy the natural beauty that abounds here. The sanctuary hosts impalas, the rare Sitatunga antelope as well as big cats, buffalos, giraffes, cheetahs and several primate species. The sanctuary is also home to five campsites all with spectacular views of Lake Victoria. Bird watching, nature walks and glass bottomed boat rides compliment the activities availed at the sanctuary.
With an area approaching 70,000 sq km, is the largest lake in Africa and the second largest freshwater lake in the world (after Canada’s Lake Superior). Unlike the lakes further west, Lake Victoria is not of the Rift Valley system and is wide and shallow (only 80m deep) with shores spanning three countries.
