The sailor said to her ” Be careful girl” . In defiance, she raised her legs up and rested them on the edge of the boat.
What a sight! He exclaimed
Yes, she asserted, “The horizon is beautiful “
There are some experiences you never forget. Like watching an eagle perched on a water depth mark for two hours or even more, unbothered, not a single care in the world, or getting stuck on an island with no hope of ever getting out, but also blessed with the privilege of basking in the beauty of a large water body, the horizon or a sunset if you’re lucky enough .
The wildlife are not caged and a couple of times you’ll catch a zebra swinging it’s hips home or an eagle perched on the hump of a warthog all pimped up and looking like a million dollars.
The best part? The park has a nature trail that goes through the undulating landscapes and hiking through it could be the icing on the cake for the Ndere Island experience. Your safety is almost always guaranteed as most of the animals that inhabit the island are not harmful, well I spotted one or two bee hives.Lol
Standing at the peak of the island, one is able to get a 360 degree view of the place. ( Check my instagram for the video) . At this position , you’ll be treated to a panoramic view of Homa hills in the South; its sister island Magere Island, Lake Victoria and Kampala majestically lying in the south western horizon. Lawd, I thought I’d seen beautiful things. Sigh.
Also, the Kenya Wildlife Service has put up two camping sites just in case you’d love some of that.
I’d love to share some tips just in case you decide to do this.
1.In case you decide to drive from kisumu an SUV would be ideal. You don’t want to get stuck in mud in the middle of nowhere when it rains. I think it’s important to note that you can get to Ndere from Kisumu by boat.
3. Water is life. Carry some to quench your thirst when the climb gets tough.
I think it’s pretty disappointing that there’s no form of accommodation on the island but then again it could be due to the need to maintain an equilibrium in it’s ecosystem.Maybe. Nevertheless, this is one of the most beautiful destinations I’ve found myself at.
So that’s it guys. Catch you soon.
