Rusinga Island was catapulted into the news in 1948 when Louis and Mary Leakey announced the discovery of the Proconsul skull and other 18-million-year-old fossils. Rusinga regularly hosts a team from the American Museum of Natural History who continue this work and give personal guided tours of the sites. The two most rewarding prehistoric sites are located a short walk from Rusinga Island Lodge.
The lodge is a secluded retreat in grounds of exotic trees, a haven for a myriad of bird species. There are 6 en-suite cottages and a family cottage with interconnecting twin room and double room. All cottages are crafted from local materials, and have dressing room, living area, high thatched roof and spacious veranda. Meals are created from home grown vegetables and fruits. Breakfast and lunch are served alfresco; dinner can be served in the mess, candlelit on the jetty, at the gazebo or around the floodlit swimming pool.
Rusinga’s Wellness Spa offers a selection of treatments including African Awakening, Kenyan Caress and Mogambo Massage. Activities include fishing, bird watching, biking, hiking and boat trips. Water sports include waterskiing, donutting and knee boarding. Rusinga Island Lodge supports local community projects such as Eddie Thackray Memorial School, Kageno Trust and Kibisom Women’s Group.
