My wife, son, niece and I stayed two nights at Kiboko Bay in August of 2012. It was nice to just sit, relax and enjoy the view of the lake. The restaurant and bar were excellent, as well as the staff. It was somewhat challenging if one were going to be making frequent trips in and out of downtown Kisumu-quite a lengthy and bumby tuk-tuk or taxi ride, but the ambiance of the resort went a long way toward making up for it. We really enjoyed getting up early in the morning to watch the hippos graze right outside of our tent. All in all, the nicest place we stayed during our two-week adventure in Kenya. There's nothing quite like it here in West Virginia, USA. Thanks for memories!
