About Rusinga Island Lodge
Rusinga exudes an atmosphere of serene tranquillity. The manicured, velvet lawns stretch to the water's edge and the grounds, with its exotic trees, are a haven for a myriad of bird species, many of which are unique to this area 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 Kenya and the perfect mid-safari break. Rusinga's spacious grounds offer a safe environment for children to release their energy, the more active to catch up on their exercise, and those wishing to relax, a halcyon oasis in which to unwind and take respite.
Rusinga's Wellness Spa offers a range of luxurious treatments, whilst on the lake guests may enjoy invigorating water sports such as waterskiing and tubing. For the keen fisherman, the shallow waters of Lake Victoria are home to legendary Nile perch growing up to 500lbs, and even the most reluctant fisherman can reap gratification casting off the jetty for abundant tilapia. The romance of Rusinga began many years ago when archaeologists Mary and Louis Leakey camped under her gracious fig tree at the base for their ground-breaking discovery nearby of Proconsul Heseloni. Today romance still lingers at Rusinga - breathtaking sunsets over the lake, moonlit dinners on the jetty, golden sunrises and enchanting cottages.
Accommodation is in 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 veranda overlooking the lake. Bedrooms are either twin (with 2 queen size beds) or double (with 1 king size bed). Bathrooms are spacious with double sink and "soup plate" showers. Electricity is provided by both generator and inverter power offering an electrical supply 24-hours a day.
