RUMA NATIONAL PARK

This park promises undiscovered wildlife treasures and undisturbed peace. It is also Kenya’s last remaining sanctuary for the endangered roan antelope. The birdlife is exceptional. It is only park in Kenya where the globally threatened blue swallow, a scarce intra-African migrant, is regularly recorded. Animals in Ruma include Rhino, Girrafe, buffalo, antelopes, cheetah etc

SIMBI NYAIMA LAKE WITH FLAMINGOS

In the lovely area near Kendubay, you'll find a small lake where flamingos make their home. This lake is like a hidden treasure, with its clear water that shines in the sunlight. Imagine the scene: graceful flamingos with their long necks and pretty feathers, standing in the water. It's like a beautiful painting come to life, and it's a must-see for anyone who visits.

ABUNDU HOT SPRINGS.

Located in Homa Hills near Kendubay it features pools of super-heated water, connected to a hot underground source, with steam hissing and bubbling up constantly. You can see the bubbles of water and steam boiling up through the channel or spout-hole naturally. The salty water oozed from this area is hot enough to cook any kind of food. The area is abit neglected. The county government should consider upgrading and marketing the place to a tourist destination

MFANGANO ROCK ART

Mfangano Island, rising 300m out of the lake near the Kenyan shore, is home to some of the most prominent rock painting sites in the country, featuring abstract patterned paintings thought to have been created between 1,000 and 4,000 years ago by hunter-gatherers. The rock paintings on Mfangano Island are found at two principal sites: in a cave near the sea known as Mawanga, and at a rock shelter further inland called Kwitone.

SANDY BEACHES WITH A COASTAL FEEL

Homabay County is the home to Takawiri Island. A small island located between Mbita Mainland and Mfangano Island. The island features sandy beaches with a natural beach transition. Access is by waterbus or speedboat boat or wooden motor boats.

MBASA/BIRDS ISLAND

These are two small twin islands, popularly known as Bird Island that is not inhabited by people. Mbasa Island is right in the middle of the lake in between Mbita mainland and Takawiri Island. Mbasa is home to a wide variety of wetland birds, including long-tailed cormorants (which have a breeding colony here), fish eagles, marsh harriers and little white egrets. Bird concentrations are thickest at sunset, when birds return to roost. To get here you’ll need to arrange for a boat ride. The islands are accessible 20 mins from Mbita Mainland by speed boat.

STEEP HILLS SUITABLE FOR HIKING

Gwasi Hills in Subs south, Gera Hills in Suba north and Mfangano Island are perfect elevations that will challenge any seasoned hiker.
