Hi All.

I am planning a trip to the Kenyan side of Lake Victoria this easter, Kisumu to be exact.

I know of two collection points in Kisumu, Hippo Point and Dunga Beach.

Can anyone advice on other collection points in the Kisumu area of the lake?

Any advice will be highly appreciated.

Thanks

Thanks Guys...

I will certainly get loads of videos and pics and upload them as soon as i get back.

We have arranged a for a guide from the Kenya Marine and Fisheries Department to take us to all cichlid "hot spots".

We leave tomorrow at 10pm, drive thru the night and will be at the lake by 4am...

OUr main aim is to collect cichlids, if we get a chance to grap some of those yummy Tilipia, we will do so... :P

Hey if you dont mind me asking, where did you get the connections or contacts to plan this trip? I am looking into planning something just like this, did you have to get permits to export fish back to the US? Around how much is the trip costing? Thanks a lot!

Hi.

Well since i live in Nairobi, i don't have to worry about shipping to US.

I have all the necessary permits required so its just a matter of getting a few friends together and heading out to the lake.

I can assist anyone willing to come to Kenya and take them to the lake, as far as shipping back to US is concerned, that's no problem at all as i have my own Freight and international courier companies...

When do you want to come?
