Stay in a local parish with Father Emannuel and meet the many Sisters who work with local communities, wake up to the sounds of the church choir, feel free to join…keep in mind it’s a 6am start.
Lake Victoria is a wonderful place to enjoy a swim or go fishing with locals in their traditional wooden boats.
