Famously known as the Jade Sea because of the remarkable, almost incandescent color of its waters, which strikingly appear blue-green, this gem consists of three national parks.
South Island National Park
Famed as the “isle of mystery” covered end to end in volcanic ash, and the island’s nightly glow, the destination is a haven for birdlife which includes the African skimmer and Goliath heron. African open billed stock, ducks and gulls feed on the shores of this volcanic island. The destination is the world’s largest crocodile nursery and home to the world’s most venomous reptiles.
Sibiloi National Park
This park is dubbed the cradle of mankind, as it is home to important archaeological site- Koobi Fora. This area is semi desert, surrounded with volcanic formations including Mount Sibiloi and a breeding ground for the Nile crocodile and hippopotamus.
Wildlife is in abundance including zebras, grant gazelles, lions, leopards, stripped hyenas, oryx, greater kudu and cheetahs.
Central Island National
Dubbed as the gem of Lake Turkana, this area is composed of more than a dozen craters and cones. The island possesses three active volcanoes that belch sulphurous smoke and steam. The world’s largest concentration of Nile crocodiles reside here and are monstrous in size.
