Kisii is surrounded by green hills and is mainly an agricultural town. It is a gateway to many of the national parks - Ruma National Park in Lambwe, South Nyanza is about 3 hours drive from the town and the Masai Mara National Park is also accessible from the town via the Kisii-Kilgoris road. With several wildlife options within easy reach, Kisii makes an excellent base for those seeking a balance between thrilling game drives and a relaxed village. Kisii was originally known by the Gusii community as 'Bosongo', which is generally considered to have originated from 'Abasongo', translating as 'the White people' who inhabited the town during the colonial times.Read More
