DESTINATION

A private retreat in one of Africa's most remote and historical corners, Rusinga Island Lodge offers the ideal respite before, between or after the rigours of any East African safari.

The Lodge is in Western Kenya, 80 miles due west of the famous Masai Mara game reserve, on Rusinga Island, Lake Victoria, the world's second largest freshwater lake.

ACCOMODATION

The Lodge's newly opened Spa offers a range of luxurious treatments, whilst on the lake guests may enjoy invigorating water sports such as water skiing and doughnutting. For the keen fisherman, the shallow waters of Lake Victoria are home to legendary Nile Perch growing up to 300lbs, and even the most reluctant fisherman can reap gratification casting off the jetty for abundant tilapia.

Rusinga's Island Lodge spacious grounds offer a safe environment for children to release their energy, the more active to catch up on their exercise. For those wishing to relax, a halcyon oasis in which to unwind and take respite.

Equipment is available for all age groups for water-skiing, mono-skiing, knee-boarding, tubing and mountain biking. There are many walks available around the island or, for the more adventurous, take a short boat ride to Mfangano Island and then hike uphill to explore ancient rock art.

EXPERIENCE

A place of quiet and beauty to calm the mind and rejuvenate the body. Rusinga Island Lodge with its luxurious accommodation, is a great place to relax before, during or at the end of a rigorous and exciting East African Safari.

Troll for enormous Nile Perch along the shores and in the shallow waters of Lake Victoria, or cast for Tilapia in the evening from Rusinga Island Lodge's superb jetty. Both fish make delicious eating and the kitchen is happy to cook your catch for you.

The Lodge's record for Nile Perch, which can weigh as much as 300lbs, is 203lbs. There are six well equipped and speedy fishing boats, with experienced boat captains available to give you the best chance of catching the 'big one'.
