 Ndere Island

Ndere Island, a newly gazetted park, is an island just off the northern shore of Lake Victoria and was opened in November 1986. Ndere means ‘meeting place’ in the language of the local Luo tribe. According to the Luo folklore, Kit Mikayi, mother of the tribe, rested up near Ndere after her long journey south down the Nile valley. She found the lush shorelines so pleasing that she and her people stayed.
