Wanyama lives in Winchester, a small city in England devoid of media glare which suits the footballer who often prefers to live a private life.

 

And not to forget his philanthropic trait as he notably makes a number of charitable donations. He also treats his family to a number of excursions while taking them for shopping trips in London.
