A private retreat in one of Africa's most remote and historical corners, Rusinga Island Lodge is on Rusinga Island, Lake Victoria in Western Kenya. Lake Victoria is the world's second largest freshwater lake (Lake Superior being the largest).

Rusinga exudes an atmosphere of serene tranquillity.  Manicured lawns stretch to the water's edge, and the grounds, with its exotic trees, are haven for a myriad of bird species - many of which are unique to this small corner 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 East Africa. Part of Rusinga's charm lies in her gracious hospitality, personalized service and fine cuisine.  Each guest's stay is tailored specifically to their individual needs.

With their high-thatched roofs, spacious verandas overlooking lush gardens and the sparkling waters of Lake Victoria beyond, Rusinga's accommodation comprises six self-contained cottages plus a family cottage with twin room and double room and an interconnecting door.  Bedrooms are either double (with a king size bed) or twin (with two queen size beds) with a living area and dressing area.  Oversized, en-suite bathrooms have double basins and walk-in, soup-plate showers. Combining intimate charm and privacy with the highest level of personal comfort, the cottages are crafted from local materials.
