Dan Odero Dala Adventures

Dala Adventures and Travel was happy and grateful to have been part of the 6th edition of the Rusinga Cultural Festival. I have dedicated the past two years chasing and exploring festivals around East Africa. I have been to Uganda and Tanzania and other parts of Kenya exploring festivals and events, so far RCF has shown its authenticity and capacity as a festival that truly celebrates the culture of a people. Only RCF festival has given me a full cultural package with local acts void of western influence.

Sisa MabhenaReporter, Slovak Television - TV JoJ

I loved the fact that Rusinga Festival employed the all round approach in celebrating the Suba culture, environment and tourist attractions while at the same time having an educational aspect. Rusinga Festival is definitely the best event that I have attended in Kenya.

Msafiri Magazine (June 2016)

You will be, transported back in time to the wealth of Suba Culture. It's the only remaining place on Earth where you can drink in this culture amid nature's stunning serenades over a fresh water lake.

Magunga WilliamsBest Kenyan Blogger of the Year - BAKE Awards 2017, 2018, 2019

There is too much rich history lying about, uncelebrated. Too much lost culture begging to be found. What I love about the Rusinga Festival is that it brings back to life one of the most amazing, yet largely ignored cultures of our time. That of the Suba community.
