In the middle of the hot, scotching sun of the Northern frontier is Lake Turkana, Formerly Lake Rudolf. It is also commonly called the Jade Sea, because of the greenish-blue color. This color comes from the algae, giving the lake a magnificent jade. It is the largest desert lake in the world. It is shared by Kenya and Ethiopia, but only a small portion is outside Kenya.
Turkana safari is not a regular safari; it is an adventure of a life time. It is a journey that requires both mental and physical readiness because of the many hours one sits in the vehicle. Although breaks are slotted in our itineraries, Lake Turkana safari is by no means for the faint heart. But when the lake opens up in front of you, the feeling of accomplishment is second to none: you have dared to cross the rough terrains, conquered, and the Jade Sea is just in front of you.
Getting to Turkana overland is no mean feat. While it is possible to fly to the Lake in a Chartered aircraft (and indeed flying is recommended for the furthest Northern reaches) it must be said that flying to Turkana somewhat distills the adventure.
This is place where the journey is very much part of the destination- and it is only by taking the long difficult road that a real sense of remoteness is gained. However, the flight itself is quite an experience, taking in wonderful vistas across the Suguta Valley and providing a birds eye view of the Lake itself.
Most visitors make the long trip from Nairobi over a 2 or 3-day period, stopping en route at Maralal, Samburu, or Marsabit. The trip winds through some beautiful country and travelers invariably encounter Rendille camel trains, and pass by tiny villages and nomadic encampments along the way.
The history and cultures of the North- the Samburu, Pokot, Gabbra, Borana and many more are written upon the soil of this trackless land- and traveling through this area is a great education in itself. Both the East and West shores of the Lake each offer unique areas of interest.
At the South East tip of the Lake, reached via South Horr, the tiny oasis of Loiyangalani (“the place of the trees”) attracts many travelers to its palm groves, where a constant wind offers relief from the searing heat. There is a well-maintained campsite and basic lodge here. Many safari companies and operators offer truck trips to this area- sometimes combined with a Camel safari further south.
