Home of Peace
Kenya

Where is Home of Peace located?

People often ask this question and we normally reply that it is near Siaya in Kenya.
That is accurate but not really helpful so we have put together a selection of pictures to help you understand where the home is located. It is in the ‘bush’ in a very small village that is not even shown on the map.

The nearest ‘city’is Kisumu which is about 70km east of Home of Peace
We are closer to Siaya. The home is about 30km east of Siaya.

The actual village closest to us is Akala

From Akala one travels through the wonderfully named Bagdad Shopping Centre. In reality a couple of huts at the side of the road.

We have included a photo Ray took of the Bagdad Hotel. Yes that is the entire hotel.
From Bagdad we need to travel towards the Yala River. Home of Peace is just below the large bend in the river
The approximate location is shown by the circle on this Google view of the area in the last image on this page.
