Kisumu District

Kisumu is situated on the north tip of Winam Gulf, which in itself is part of Kavirondo Gulf of Lake Victoria. The port was founded in 1901 as the main inland terminal of the Uganda Railway and named Port Florence.
Lake Victoria ferries operate from the port linking the railway to Mwanza, Bukoba, Entebbe, Port Bell and Jinja.
Before the jet airline era, Kisumu was a landing point on the British flying boat passenger and mail route from Southampton to Cape Town. Kisumu linked Port Bell and Nairobi. Kisumu is served by an airport, with regular daily flights to Nairobi and elsewhere. There are plans to expand the airport in anticipation of increased trade brought about by the recreated East African Community (Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda).
