On the Lake Turkana Festival tour we venture to the little visited northern regions, an arid land that is home to a number of different ethnic groups including the Samburu, Gabbra, El Moro and Rendille, all of whom adhere to very traditional and unique ways of life.
The primary purpose of our adventure is to reach the shimmering expanse of Lake Turkana, the largest desert lake in the world, and there to luxuriate in the convivial atmosphere and vivid colours of the Lake Turkana festival which annually brings together many different indigenous cultures in a spirit of reconciliation.
Here we find the El Molo, who hunt the hippo and giant crocodiles with which they share their home. This exciting and off the beaten track tour lends travellers the chance to explore parts of Kenya which see very few visitors, offering a glimpse into enduring ways of life that have not survived in most parts of the world.
