Then came his mysterious disappearance and discovery in a little known place then ‘Got Agila’

This is a beautiful drive, serene and green most of the year with splendid pan aromas and a place with plenty mystical tales.
Nearby is a place with guest houses and horse riding

Located in Kisumu county about 1.5-2hrs drive from Kisumu Hqs and equally easily accessible from Kericho County as a day trip or overnight trip . From Siaya county 2.5-3 hr trip making it a full day outing to learn about a local Great African Leader the community holds in High Esteem!!
