Kendu Bay is a fishing port and steamer landing point on Kavirondo gulf. The area comprises a swamp zone on the lake plains at about 3,700 feet, an escarpment, and a plateau zone above at 3,850 feet. There is more swamp in the west where the river Oluoch meanders over a flat plain. The east is generally higher and the rivers are shorter, faster and without meanders.
