She has a lot to share with you and this shall be an eye-opening juncture. We shall have a 45 minute chat with her. From Alego Kogelo we will explore other attraction sites in this region.
Our first one being Lake Kanyaboli, the only oxbow lake in Kenya. The surrounding has some grand views of the expansive Yala Swamp which is also a habitat for rare and endemic bird species like the Blue-Breasted Bee Eater, the Papyrus Gonolek, the Swamp Flycatcher, the Papyrus Canary, the White Winged Warbler, the Great Snipe and much more.

We will then move on to Bondo town for lunch and then drive to Kit Mikaye. This is another important landmark that is believed to be the boulders of the first wife.
