    Top Descriptions

    Kisumu is a major port on Lake Victoria and a good place to break up a long journey. It’s a fairly well-facilitated city for East African standards, and it’s fairly orderly too. But as far as tourism goes, there’s little reason to linger here other than to stock up, rest and arrange onward transport. Those living in the area can no doubt offer a more thorough description and are encouraged to post it here. – Daniel
