Dunga Boardwalk
3.67Kviews

The Dunga boardwalk in Dunga Village at the beach, is your perfect place for bird watching, hippos watch and enjoying the amazing Kisumu sunset yonder the Lake Victoria waters. The sundowners along the lake are breathtaking. Ambers of the sun spreading a screaming golden brown across the full breadth of the lake are also a common phenomenon every evening.

The boardwalk stands on top of a wetland swamp that is made up largely of papyrus reeds, giving it the lush green ambience. You can walk on the boardwalk and experience the lushness of marshland in a very quiet and serene environment, save for the chirping sounds of the various birds’ communities.
