It is so cool and very good while you are in the rooms and they do take care of the compound so well,the view of the lake in the early morning and in the evening sunset as it goes down,beds are very big in size too,so good poll to relax the daytime sun.

I was well received by the staff and the Manager and taken round to conduct accessibility of the Lodge. Treated to a very delicious traditional meal with culinary artwork. The disability cottage is close to the restaurant with ramps to the door and bathroom. Hand grabs are available in the washroom with a curtain partition separating with bathroom. Sliding doors...

Located just by the lake, it would be a good place for one who wants to get out of town. The rooms are pretty swell. Only problem is that it does get a little crowded especially on the weekdays when locals visit the place and might not worth the price for those who would want some peace and quiet. Apart... More

Impala Ecolodge is a nice place in a good setting, but it cannot decide whether it is a mid-range safari lodge or a day-use facility for Kisumu families. Many of the favorable reviews here appear to be from day visitors coming for a meal; however the experience is quite different for the staying guest. Imagine paying over $300 for the... More

I have had both good (called ahead for a 3 course birthday brunch) and below average experiences eating at the EcoLodge. (The instant coffee in the French press--that wasnt great, but was a while ago), but my husband took me for a surprise lunch recently. As usual, the setting was lovely and it was very quiet. I wanted something light,... More

The furnishings are well done I must admit. The menu is not so special but the prices are!! The view of the lake makes you forget all your troubles :) its well hidden, in the park, its quite relaxed and scenic.

What a great place on Lake Victoria at Hippo Point. We were in a little hut with our porch right on the water. You could see and hear the Hippos near by. The rooms spacious and comfortable. The pool was a great relief after our long and dusty drive. Food was good, bar and wine adequate. We had breakfast on... More

A beautiful property set in an animal park near Kisumu, on the banks of Lake Victoria. Hippos come ashore at night! Impalas roam the park, also zebra and giraffe. the accommodation is outstanding and well provided although the bathrooms are small. Service good and managment friendly On the downside though the food could be more imaginative for a five star... More

The place is breathtaking, the staff a very professional, the choice of building materials 'wooden planks on the floor finish' is superb, the views are out of this world.I went there with my girlfriend and she can't think of any other place in Kisumu.
