Welcome to Homa Bay

In the town itself, there's little to do beyond wandering the dusty, music-filled streets or strolling down to the lake edge to watch the marabou storks pick through the trash as they wait for the fishermen and their morning catch. But there are some interesting walls in the neighbouring hills – the easiest summit to bag is the unmistakable conical mound of Asego Hill, which is just beyond the town and takes about an hour to clamber up – and the town makes a great base from which to visit Ruma National Park and Thimlich Ohinga.
