Hotels in Kisumu

The area of western Kenya is composed of Nyanza Province surrounding Lake Victoria, and Western Province, along the Ugandan border. Nyanza is the home to the Luo tribe, along the lake, and the Kisii people, who live in the highlands. The Luhya tribe and their relatives dominate Western Province. Kisumu is the hub of western Kenya.

It is Kenya’s third largest city, but like Mombasa across the country, it has a mellow feel to it, as opposed to the chaotic Nairobi. Besides going to western Kenya to experience its different culture, there is enough to keep travelers busy for a while. You can check out the largest lake in Africa, visit Kakamega Forest Reserve, or hike around on the slopes of Mt Elgon.
