Lodwar – Kenya
Lodwar is a desert town with strong winds in the far northwest of Kenya, on the western side of Lake Turkana. Lake Turkana is the fourth largest lake in Africa and the biggest desert lake in the world. It is also called the Jade Sea due to its turquoise colour and the area is often called the Cradle of Mankind due to the many fossilised hominids that have been found here.
Lodwar can potentially be used as a starting point to explore the three national parks, all of which will require a boat trip to be organised. Two of the national parks are islands: Central and South Island. And the other national park lies on the eastern shores of Lake Turkana, Sibiloi National Park.
