I visited this sanctuary, by the way it was a recommendation from my fiancee. I never knew a male grown ostrich was that tall. I felt chilled when I was like 10 metres away from a fully grown male lion though it smells like a disaster. This is the place to meet friendly primates (monkeys) as they await something from...

We traveled here with a group of about 30 people. It is a comfortable site to see a variety of animals. Almost all the animals are in enclosures. The free roaming animals are impalas and some monkeys. You are able feed the giraffes branches. We saw lions, a hyena, a giraffe, a blue monkey and a cheetah.

You can see impala wandering free and couple of zebras. And big cats in a cage. Some monkeys, also in cage. It is a small zoo. Nature is nice, animals are nice, and it is nice to hear lion roar. Worth a visit of one hour or less. If you think you want to spend USD 27 for that, feel... More

Impala Sanctuary is really nice place to visit with small children, while you walk around and look at animals, monkeys try to snatch your ice cream! It was great place to visit although animals are living in rather small enclosures. We got very good guide who knew a lot about animals and even told exactly how they ended up in... More

The animals are in enclosures except for the zebras and impalas. Great for young kods. The paths are well marked with free guides. There's a hotel within with a good restaurant for a chilled drink

The Kisumu Impala Park is great for people viewing wild life for the first time. Proximity of the animals in close-to-home environments makes this experience worth it. Certainly requires someone who knows a little bit about the animals to tell short stories about their behaviors as you move from one animal group to the other. Laid-back nature of the king... More

Spent the last weekend of January at this place. The lions are magnificent but a rather bored giraffe. You can actually touch the cheetahs but from outside the fence though. Yes there is no lake anymore. Water hyacinths have taken over. So sad!

Great mini experience! Loved the selection of wildlife available up close. It's a small zoo, but the animals were really active. I got to touch a cheetah :)

A most beautiful place to relax, take dinner, watch the sun downing below the lake. I tell you, you won't get your eyes off the impalas cross-crossing about.
