Kisumu Impala Sanctuary

This little gem is tucked into a corner of the city, right beside Lake Victoria, the largest freshwater lake in Africa. Located within Kisumu city, Kisumu Impala Sanctuary lies on the shores of Lake Victoria, covering less than 1km2. The facility was gazetted in 1992. In March 2010, the sanctuary was branded as ‘a lakeshore walk with impalas’. There are a diverse number of flora (of trees, grass & herbs) and fauna both free ranging and captive. Over 115 species of birds have been recorded. Presently, the sanctuary boasts of all the big five game except for the elephant. A number of nature trail circuits are also available for clients.

Visitors here can enjoy bird watching, nature walks and glass bottomed boat rides. The sanctuary is a key site for ecology and wildlife research and education.
