Visit the jade green jewel of Kenya – Lake Turkana, located in the dry northern region bordering Ethiopia. The vast expanse of the lake and its surroundings are truly an imposing site – the lack of plants and wildlife will leave you feeling like you have left Planet Earth and landed in alien territory! Visit the El Molo tribal villages nearby for some company; this endangered tribe is said to be the smallest in Africa! The local lodge offers you a relaxing experience complete with a charming boat cruise at sunset. A word of caution: the lake is infested with crocodiles!
