I manged to do our gifting in the one of the know areas of Lake Simbi Nyaima in Karachuonyo, near Kendu Bay Town, is famed for its culture and other attractions. Simbi Nyaima has proved its worth as a tourist destination. It lures local and international visitors yearning for a beautiful scenery and strange tales of its formation.In Dholuo, “Simbi Nyaima” means the village that sank. Even though Geologists say it is a crater lake formed about six centuries ago.They also believe that the lake came about as a result of earthquakes accompanied by volcanic eruptions. despite all these, We managed to gift this place to make it safer for the resident and the tourist who had been visiting this place.
The water from the lake is believed to be medicinal. Locals say it can cure many diseases. Legio Maria sect members flock the lake for body and spiritual healing. One can smell the lake from more than 40 kilometers away. Lake Simbi Nyaima is a seasonal home of migrating flamingos.
They arrive from lakes in the Rift Valley region, such as Nakuru, Baringo, Natron and Elementaita. The birds come to the lake every year. What strikes almost every visitor is how the flamingos locate the lake, owing to the great distance between it and the other lakes. The road network has improved greatly and it only takes 30 minutes to drive from Kendu Bay to the lake.
It would take about an hour to drive from Homa Bay Town to Lake Simbi Nyaima using the Homa Bay-Kisumu road. Visitors can get refreshments and be entertained in the many hotels nearby like the Big Five in Kendu Bay Town and Tourist Hotel in Homa Bay Town. Other interesting places near Lake Simbi Nyaima include the Kanjera Archeological site and Kendu Bay’s Old Town, where Arabs settled as early as 1920.
