This hidden animal sanctuary has various antelope species that are so tame as to walk around with the visitors the wild cats are caged but quite friendly too. It is a must visit if you are in Kisumu Town.

It was great to see the animals especially if you can’t get out to the bigger parks. I felt sad that the big male lion is in a wired area and felt like he was saying he was also sad when he was roaring.
It is a beautiful spot on the banks of the Lake with free roaming impala.
If you are a Kenyan resident it is cheap to get in but for non residents it is 2500/=

the sanctuary offers one with an opportunity to see at a close range wild animals like lions, cheater, antelope ,zebra, giraffe, assorted monkeys, and birds. a tour in the sanctuary is also a learning experience as information about the animals are readily available and a guides like George ready to explain. they also have excellent picnic site by the lake.

I visited the park on 26th December 2017. The administrative process at the entrance is efficient and fast. The staffs are friendly and willing to help. The park has animals and birds. These animals and birds leave pleasant memories that may not be erased for a long time. The friendly and graceful giraffe makes you relax in awe of its presence. There was a rhino some years back....sadly I was informed it died. The caged Lions are as arrogant as ever, not bothered with the visitors, but taking their nap. Their sight reminds you why they are the king of the jungle. The monkeys are naughty, one has to be careful with any edibles when near them. The roaming zebras, impalas and monkeys gives the park a unique touch. It is a place worth visiting with your friends and family. You can also visit alone if you need some quiet time. The park is amazing because apart from the animals, one can have a picnic or take a boat ride in Lake Victoria and end the visit with several printed photos to remind you of the day.

This is a place we love to go in our city. The animals are interesting, especially with the impala, zebras and monkeys running around! It's a great place to sit and relax in the shade and enjoy the lake. It's very affordable for citizens and resident aliens.
