It is quite a motorbike ride to get there and it is not like really awesome but it has a real African feeling which makes it worth a visit! Tilapia & Ugali and the lakeside restaurant tastes superb!!

Loved the place! We took a boat from Hippo Point, and Titus who owned tha boat showed us a lot of animal life, hippo and a lot of different birds together with big lizards. Dunga bay is a must if you are in Kisumu!
