The Luo culture and traditions are very different from those of other parts of Kenya, and staying at Mfangano Island Camp there is the possibility to sample this colourful culture.
Villages dot the shores of Lake Victoria, and the main activities are fishing and trading in Nile Perch and Tilapia. We would be delighted to arrange a trip to see our local village accompanied by a guide. The walk to the village takes half an hour, along the picturesque lakeshore. The residents here are very friendly and will happily show you around their village. It is also possible to visit the local school, which has been re-built with the help of Mfangano Island Camp and our generous guests. If guests feel like exploring on a nearby island and deep into the interior, are hidden caves decorated with prehistoric rock art.
