wedding in kisumu kenya

am looking for a wedding venue in Kisumu. Quite anumber of people are talking about kiboko bay. I love the place, but i need a venue for all the 3 events, that is the ceremony, the reception and the extended party. I hear it is very dangerous to party at night at kiboko bay because of the kibokos strolling around at night. could somebody please give me ideas. I dont know if imperial hotel is still in the same condition or better than it was 15 years ago, coz i know sunset is totally run down. Please help.

Try the Yacht club in Kisumu. Personally I think it's a bit "snobbish". However you could check it out. Next to the lake, there is the the Kisumu beach resort.

Hope that helps..

Just throwing out an idea here. You could actually have your extended party on a ship on Lake Victoria. You'll need to get in touch with the Kisumu Port Authority if you're interested. And you'll need to hire a DJ separately. Two of my (expat) friends were leaving Kisumu for good and jointly threw a party like this in November last year. I have to say that was the best party I had ever been to. Don't expect the boat to go anywhere though. The hyacinth clogs up the engines real fast.

I'm not sure why you have put this on the Nairobi Forum??

I thought Sunset Hotel had been revived. Is there someone in Kisumu who can tell you this?

In my opinion, Rusinga Island would be a bit expensive for your visitors to reach. How many are you expecting and will they be locals or ex-pats or both?
