Lake Turkana, Kenya

Lake Turkana is in a region of Kenya that is an authentic anthropology museum where you can find some of the most important paleontological sites in the world and where, in addition, a multitude of ethnic groups coexist. The lake is in a warm and very dry environment, a gem called the Jade Sea . Although it is not a paradisiacal landscape, it does have a lot of charm with a beautiful sunset and those coppery colors characteristic of the desert.

As for the animal world, in the lake there are no goldfish but huge Nile perch and tilapia. The rains are scarce in these lands, in fact the legend says that it rains every ten years, but with this of the legends we already know. It is the cradle of a Monkey who one day decided to stand up and walk on two feet instead of four legs. It is also the site of humanity. Here, in 1974, a small woman of more than three million years was discovered, Lucy, perhaps Eva or rather the missing link, who knows !.

The lake in its past had an extensive population of crocodiles, about 14,000, and where the Omo River flows, it was the territory of the Molo tribe, which was known for the ability of its members in hunting crocodiles from all over Africa . Stuck in a log with a spear, a knife and a simple harpoon they sailed to the North Island in order to obtain the food that the lake offered them. As a recommendation, if you like to stay in hotels with more stars there you will not find them, but you will find good accommodations in the middle of nature to be able to enjoy it as it should.
