We spent an extra day relaxing in The Haven, walked down to the Nile, watched the white water rafters, the fishermen, had a bit of lunch and dinner in the evening. The next day, Sunday, was going to be a long drive, including crossing the border at Busia, back into Kenya. The border only took a little over an hour, maybe because it was Sunday... They got us for vehicle importation tax though...
Our first choice of campsite in Kissumu, the Kissumu Beach Resort, was a bit of a let down. It looked more like a rubbish tip than anything else! So, we waved goodbye to the guard and headed for option nr 2, the Dunga Hill Camp. The place was packed with locals, having Sunday dinner and chilling at the lake. Over drinks we got talking to the only other campers, a Dutch couple from Oisterwijk, we had dinner together and then watched an amazing sunset! The Brabanders left in the morning, so we were the only ones left... I spent most of the day sleeping (was not feeling very well) and Padraig caught up with some work. And then, at night, the rain came down!
