Excellent place to get away, or to stop over while traveling around Kenya. Superb international foods, adventures in permaculture, geology, boating, exploring unusual places. Owner Linda is an artist and rich with info about the local people and their culture and how to experience it all, or you may just want to relax by Lake Victoria. Really nice experience at a super price.

- Wayando Beach Eco Lodge is a Friendly and Intimate Eco Resort on the shores of Lake Victoria. Come rest under the trees or swing in a hammock. We are practicing permaculture and organic gardening and serving our guests wholesome and local meals. Often it is eclectic. Boat tours are easy with out new boat and engine. Guests enjoy bird watching, hiking and cultural exploration. We can organize guided boat excursions for day fishing or night fishing for Omena or to other islands and around Rusinga to look for Hippos. Currently we have four self contained bandas available for guests. In total there are three doubles with large bed each and one single with twin beds for those who want to share a room. An extra bed can be added to two of the bandas for an third person or child. Max of 8 to 10 guests. A new Banda is slated to be completed by November. Camping is also available if you want to bring your own tent. There is room to run so children are welcome. We are relaxed and welcome small groups and families who just want to hang out with the trees and the birds. The bar accommodates about 30 people or more and meals are served buffet or family style. Music is played in the bar but kept low and we have no TV to spoil the tranquility. You are free to chat, dance a bit or play cards or other games that we can supply or you may bring your own. ... more less
