Kisumu Day Tours Hippo Point Day Trip Hippo Point is a 600-acre open sunset viewing area on Lake Victoria. Despite its name, it is better known as a viewing point for its unobstructed sunsets over the lake than for its occasional hippos.
Hippo Point is near the village of Dunga a small Luo fishing village just 4 km outside Kisumu and is located by following the shoreline road south past the Sunset Hotel. It is a lovely, peaceful place to visit on the shores of Lake Victoria, and given that the views of the lake from the city Centre of Kisumu are curiously very limited (only from the tops of tall buildings), this is the best place to come to see the lake itself.
Our Kisumu Day Tours Hippo Point Day Trip departs from your hotel/ residence from where we pick you up and take you to Kiboko Bay Resort, Kisumu Beach Resort, or the Kisumu Yacht Club.
These resorts enjoy great views and gardens where you can have a cold soda or beer as you admire the little fishing boats on the lake. You also have the opportunity to swim in their delightful pool that sits on a little hill right above the lake.
Swimming is not allowed in Lake Victoria. Enjoy a boat ride on a luxurious boat as you check out hippos and birds in their natural habitat. The boat ride is fun as you get to see children playing on large rocks; men cast lines into the water; women washing clothes and the occasional very precarious-looking sailboat slowly passing by.
Aside from hippos, you will see water birds like the geese, egrets, Fish Eagles, Kingfishers, Bee-Eaters, Weavers, Swallows, ibis, Spoonbills, etc. Watching the sunset over the lake is a very pleasant way to end the day and remember being so close to the equator sunset is between 1800 Hours and 1900 Hours throughout the year.
There are hippos here, and once night has fallen they come out of the water to graze on the land. Later we transfer you back to your hotel/ residence.
