Visiting Dunga Beach

something about Dunga Beach



This is an overnight trip. Doing 80-100kph, if you leave Nairobi at noon by sunset you should be there comfortably having passed through Nakuru, kericho, 


then onto Kisum ‘dalo’
There are a number of hotels to cater for all categories within or around the town centre.
Next morning head south of the town past Swara game reserve onto a murram road that brings you to a gate at Dunga beach. If you’re early you will be Lucky to find the fish market going on, if not the locals have formed an association that can both provide a fun relaxing (and educative) boat tour or a tour of the beach where you learn about some of the 300+fish types of Lake victoria


As for the experimentative types borrow/hire a local fishing line


and bait a ‘small’ fish at the shore line which can be dip fried for you on the spot.

Places you should visit in Kisumu: Maboko Island Resort (Camp Tom)

Huku Kisumu

Last weekend I had the pleasure of being invited to attend a birthday party for Hon. Olago Aluoch’s daughter Audrey who was turning ten and his   grand daughter Tammy who was turning One. The party was being hosted by mheshimiwa‘s family at the yet to be completed Maboko Island Resort which is popularly known as Camp Tom.

You can access the Island on a yacht from any part of Kisumu but if you are driving, you have to take the Kisumu – Bondo road for about five Kilometers from Kisian Junction and branch to your left at the Obambo Mixed Secondary School junction and drive towards Ogal Beach.

On this day we had the pleasure of driving with mheshimiwa in his car to Camp David  – One of his other private recreational facilities adjacent to Ogal Beach – for you to access Camp Tom from the…

Dr. Brenda Misore

Brenda Brenda Misore would love an outgoing man who is not intimidated by her.

She is a perfect definition of the saying, “an apple does not fall too far from the tree.” Growing up as a little girl attending Xaverian Primary School in Kisumu, Brenda spent her free time at her dad’s clinic in town. She hoped that one day she would grow up to be a pediatrician…

Helping girls and Young women

The single most important challenge facing Kenya today is breaking the grip of poverty. The social situation is characterized by growing number of HIV/AIDS orphans, unemployment, child labour and  violence. Girls and women of all ages still have a very limited say over their lives and in particular over their sexuality.

The main problems faced by women and girls are:

  • The expense of commercial sanitary pads;
  • absenteeism where girls stay at home rather than attending school when menstruating;
  • unhygienic ways to dry menstrual materials;
  • inadequate waste disposal facilities;
  • lack of privacy for changing menstrual materials;
  • leakage from poor-quality protection materials;
  • the lack of resources for washing such as soap;
  • limited education about the facts of menstruation;
  • limited access to counselling and guidance;
  • fear caused by cultural myths;
  • embarrassment and low self esteem;
  • and  the unsupportive attitudes of some men.
