Rusinga Island Lodge is located in Western Kenya at Rusinga Island, Lake Victoria.
The Island is rich in fossils, and was the site of Mary Leakey’s discovery of a skull of Proconsul africanus (a primitive anthropoid ape), which can be seen in Kenya National Museum.
Rusinga Island Lodge is a 20 minute flight from Kisumu – nearest city; a 35 minute flight from the Masai Mara and an hour and a half from Nairobi. All flights are by private charter aircraft. Rusinga Island is linked to the mainland by a causeway.
Rusinga exudes an atmosphere of serene tranquility.
Manicured lawns stretch to the water’s edge, and the grounds, with its exotic trees, are haven for a myriad of bird species – many of which are unique to this small corner of Kenya.
Rusinga’s renowned hospitality; delicious home-grown, home-cooked food; and indulgent accommodation combine to offer an ideal base from which to explore other areas of East Africa.
Rusinga’s spacious grounds offer a safe environment for children to release energy and the more active to catch up on exercise.
For those wishing to relax, Rusinga’s Wellness Spa offers a nurturing retreat in which to unwind and relax.
On the lake, guests may enjoy invigorating water sports and, for the keen fisherman, Lake Victoria’s shallow waters are home to legendary Nile perch growing up to 300lbs.
Even the most reluctant fisherman can reap gratification casting off the jetty at sunset for abundant tilapia.
Rusinga Island Lodge's accommodation consists of 6 individual cottages and 1 family cottage comprising a twin room and double room with interconnecting door.
Each cottage is en suite and has its own verandah overlooking the lake. Bedrooms are either twin (with 2 queen size beds) or double (with 1 king size bed).
