LUO CULTURAL SAFARIS | HERITAGE TOURS
Western Kenya especially around Lake Victoria is a beautiful region of great geographical, agricultural, cultural and natural diversity. The climate in the area is also very unpredictable, giving way to an insecure food supply and widespread poverty, malnutrition and poor health. However, things are changing with the emergence of tourists preferring cultural tourism, agri tourism and volutourism. There are a myriad of tourist attractions and trips and communal activities to be explored and this also helps in engaging the locals hence improving their livelihoods economically.
The people around Lake Victoria’s Rusinga and Mfangano Islands majorly belong to the Luo and Abasuba tribe which is a warm welcoming community with a strong spirit despite the uphill challenges they face. Majority of luos lack most basic amenities that we take for granted like electricity, running water, sanitation, labour-saving devices, easy transport, medical care and educational opportunities.
