Semi-arid Kitui county has opened a manmade beach on a manmade lake for boating, kayaking, jet skiing and fun in the sun. The Kalundu Eco Park in Kitui town will also have a floating restaurant.
Launched during Christmas Eve on the 22nd December 2020 by the Kitui County Governor, H.E. Charity Kaluki Ngilu in Kitui Town, Kalundu Dam Eco Park is a man-made beach, the first dry land beach in Kenya. The locals have playfully thanked the governor for bringing the Kenyan coast to Kitui County. The 30.9-acre recreational facility which is only 0.9km away from Hotel San Marino, Kitui includes a nine-acre man-made dam and paved walkways. It is billed as the epitome of Kitui’s tourism attractions.
On completion, the recreational development will include a floating restaurant, kayaking, jet skiing among other amenities.
