Settling for Kisumu was a walk in the park,choosing where to stay on the other hand 🤦🤦.I had 5 items on my to do list while in Kisumu; To catch the sunset from an elevated angle,catch the sunset by the lake,go on either a sunrise or sunset cruise,delight in local cuisines and lastly learn something new about Kisumu, its residents and their culture.This list didn’t make it any easier for me as i found myself torn between Acacia Premier hotel and Jambo Impala Ecolodge and as a result i ended up settling for both. What i loved most about Jambo Impala Ecolodge was the ease in organizing for my cruise and the fact that its nestled by the lake shores which made actualizing my list so easy.
Jambo Impala Ecolodge is a few minutes drive from Kisumu town inside Kisumu Impala sanctuary . Unlike most of the hotels in the county its secluded,another thing i loved most about the Lodge which by the way i learned about its existence when i visited Jambo Mutara Camp. Booking with them was so easy,i was done in a minute and their response was almost instant,how awesome!

Well,Lake Victoria is the second largest fresh water lake in the world and over the years it used to be wealthy enough in terms of fish species to feed the population that lived around the lake.I was curious to know what species were threatened and i found out that the haplochromines are,sad.
The only thing i never got to achieve on my list was catching the sunrise but that was well compensated by the amazing sunsets i watched *breathes in and out* mmmmhh, Kisumu was awesome.
And oh,Thank you Bata kenya for keeping my feet so comfortable while on my safari with your white rubber shoes.They are life! and to Jambo Chester Hotels,you certainly made my holiday a one to remember so here is a big thank you
It’s always a pleasure having you here,hope you stick around for some more
