4 Days 3 Nights Lake Turkana Northern Kenya Fly-in Safari

4 Days 3 Nights Lake Turkana Northern Kenya Safari offers you the following; geographical beauty, rural homesteads and fishing boats, warm-hearted people, interesting animals, and natural discovery.

Lake Turkana is also known as the “Jade Sea” because of its remarkable blue-green color. This is a result of algae particles, which shift with changes of the wind and light so that the water surface shifts from blue to grey to fabulous jade.

The Lake was originally named Lake Rudolph in 1888 and was renamed Lake Turkana in 1975. It is the largest alkaline lake in the world.

Lake Turkana is 300 km long and 50 km wide and is the world’s largest permanent desert lake. The water is potable, but not very palatable. Three rivers feed into the lake but there is no outflow, all water loss is via evaporation.

Lake Turkana National Parks comprise of Sibiloi National Park, the South Island, and Central Island National Parks. The island parks are breeding habitats for Nile crocodiles, hippopotamus, and several snake species.

There are several fish in the lake to include the African Tetras, African Knifefish, African Arowana, African Elephant fish, and the Nile perch to name a few.

Many bird species migrate to the lake. Some common ones are the African Skimmer, Common & Wood Sandpiper, Greater Flamingo, and the Little Stint.

Reptiles and Mammals are both present as well. The Nile crocodiles are found there with large turtles. Several species of Zebras & Gazelles are found and an occasional sighting of a giraffe.

Crocodile Island on Lake Turkana is a favorite place of anthropologists. It is has produced some of the world’s most fascinating human evolutionary fossil finds.

Many Hominid fossils have been found around the lake dating back about two million years ago. Hominids are part of the Homininae family which consists of humans, gorillas, and chimpanzees.

These fossils are considered by some, to be the first findings of extinct human relatives. Because of these findings, the Lower Omo Valley and Lake Turkana are called the cradle of mankind.
