Kenya Top Attractions 

 Kenya has some of the most sort after attractions ranging from Coastal White Sandy Beaches to vast African Savannah grasslands, a wide variety of wildlife and bird species and  friendly, hospitable people with rich cultural backgrounds ...

Top Kenyan Attractions

Turkwel Gorge 

On the plains below the Gorge are two large, adjacent and connected compounds within which are living-quarters and recreational facilities for many people.

The Turkwel Hydroelectric plant generates more than 100 megawatts for the National Grid. The large, white, building one sees at a distance, on the lower slopes of the hillside, is part of the Power Plant.

It does not house the turbines however; these are located deep underground.

The Dam is accessed via 5 km of steeply winding track that climbs the hillside and passes the steep walls of the lower gorge (through which, now, only a trickle of water passes). 

The lakes behind the dams were created from the harnessed waters of several rivers; the major being the Suam which originates in the caldera of Mount Elgon and flows along the Suam Gorge. The steep hills around the lakes add to their startling beauty. 

Get to Turkwel by turning left off the A1, 2 km before Kaiunuk, and driving for 24 km. Nasalot Game Reserve is on the left.

Access to the KENGEN / KVDA compound requires permission. Likewise, visits to the Power Plant and Dam are possible, but only after seeking and obtaining the necessary clearance.

Lake Turkana 

Lake Turkana is a massive inland sea, the largest desert lake in the world. This single body of water is over 250 kilometres long- longer than the entire Kenyan coast.

It is widely known as the Jade Sea, because of the remarkable, almost incandescent, colour of its waters. After a long journey through the sweltering deserts and lava flows of Northern Kenya, the sight of this vast body of bright turquoise water comes as an unearthly, ethereal vision. 

The Lake is a source of life for some of Kenya’s most remote tribes. 

The Turkana, with ancestral ties to Uganda, live a semi-nomadic existence around the Lake. The country’s smallest tribe, the El Molo, live a hunter-gatherer existence on the shores, in villages of distinctive rounded reed huts.

Turkana has one of the longest living histories on earth, and recent fossil evidence unearthed at Koobi Fora has led to the Lake being referred to as ‘The Cradle of Mankind’. The site lies at the heart of the Sibiloi National Park, a place of stark beauty and prehistoric petrified forests.

The Lake itself is a natural treasure, with the world’s single largest crocodile population. 

In Turkana these reptiles grow to record size, with some of the largest specimens found on remote windswept Central Island. Lake Turkana is Kenya’s most remote destination, but one that repays the intrepid traveller with rich rewards.

Getting Around

The East and West Shores of Turkana are accessed completely separately, and are physically separated by the vast uncrossable Suguta Valley south of the Lake. The east shore is reached via Maralal and Marsabit with the central point of access being the small oasis town of Loiyangalani. 

The west shore is accessed via Kitale and the central point of access is Lodwar. There are airstrips on both shores for chartered aircraft. This area is used as a launch site for safaris into the remote Omo region of Soutern Ethiopia. 

Turkana should be visited as part of a professionally organized safari. There are very few defined roads around the Lake. The lakeshore can be explored on foot, but plenty of water and a good sense of direction are both vital. Boats are available for hire in villages along the shore, and this is the best way to explore the lake. a local guide is advisable.
