Kisumu

Kisumu, a melting pot of the Luo, Luhya,
and Kisii tribes. The city, with its modern
skyline juxtaposed against the timeless
backdrop of the lake, tells a story of
progress and tradition hand in hand.

In the western corner of Kenya, lies the enchanting city of Kisumu. Cradled by the gentle waves of Lake Victoria, Africa’s largest lake, Kisumu is a city steeped in rich cultural heritage and natural beauty. The city awakens to the rhythmic songs of fishermen setting out into the misty waters, the air is filled with the scent of fresh tilapia and the vibrant chatter of market vendors, setting up their colorful stalls along the bustling streets.
