Getting There & Away

Hiring a boat from Ferguson’s Gulf or Eliye Springs is the only option to get here. It's easiest to head to the KWS camp (www.kws.go.ke) in Ferguson's Gulf and ask them to sort out a boat for you (KSh15,000); alternatively, try the Eliye Springs Resort (boats KSh18,000).

KWS can also put you in touch with locals who have boats to try and haggle the price down to around KSh10,000. Don’t ever think about being cheap and taking a sailboat – the 10km trip and the sudden squalls that terrorise the lake’s waters aren’t to be taken lightly.
