Kisumu

Maseno Equator Point

Of all the thirteen (13) countries in the world that the equator passes through, Kenya is one of them. Actually, the equator line almost divides the country into two halves.

Maseno Town Center is also one of the few towns that the equator line passes through, and passing the Kisumu-Busia road without seeing this marvel will be pain foolhardy.

The equator point was recently rehabilitated by the County Government of Kisumu, and now tourists and visitors alike can appreciate the significance of this attraction even as they do their various travels along the road and also experience and conduct the Coriolis Effect experiment.

The locals have always been at hand to explain the working of this experiment to those eager to learn and appreciate how water oscillates clockwise in the Northern hemisphere and anticlockwise in the Southern hemisphere.
