Kit Mikaye Tour

Kit Mikaye Tour – 3 Hours

Highlights:

 

This tour takes you to the famous Kit Mikaye Rocks in Seme in Kisumu Rural. Located off Kisumu Bondo Road towards Bondo, Kit Mikaye is said to be the rock where Mikaye (which means, literally, "the first wife"), the mother of the Luo tribe, sheltered herself after a long journey down the Nile. The massive columns of Kit Mikaye in Seme are towers of boulders piled together into gravity defying columns. According to legend, this was once the homestead of a powerful man who used to abuse and mistreats his first wife. The woman returned to haunt him after her death, eventually turning him and his property into stones. Religious groups, the sick and those who want solace after a misfortune visit the rocks hoping that their prayers will be answered. It is said the woman went up the rock where she has been weeping ever since.

 

There are many spectacular rock formations which abound with myths and mythologies in western tourist circuit. The stones have been a source of solace for the Luo people for a long time. They believe that if any man with a problem visits the stones, his problems will be solved and his wishes answered, so long as elders sacrifice a goat at the site. In the past, only men were allowed near the rocks, but visitors are these days welcome.The site is managed by the Kit Mikaye Rock Development Group which has since built a house and a banda where visitors can get refreshments while on a tour.

 

After the tour, you will be dropped back to your hotel or residence within Kisumu city.
