Kisumu Town


... is the country's third largest city, set on the northeast shore of Lake Victoria in Southwest Kenya

Historically Kisumu rose to a position of importance as a transport hub, being both a major station on the Mombasa to Uganda train line and a major port on the lake.

In recent decades the port has fallen into disrepair and is now a shadow of its former self, although plans are apparently afoot to get the place moving again.

The city itself remains a rather sleepy relaxed kind of place, noticeably warmer and more humid than the surrounding hinterland.

Although there are some minor places of interest in the area, very few people choose to include Kisumu in their trip.
