  • Fantastic? Well.. is an understatement. I would say it is an extraordinary experience. One of those that make you see the real Kenya. The part of Africa that everyone should really see. An area untouched by mass tourism. A place where nature and turkana population gives unique emotions. Recommended? NO: Highly Recommended. We came back again ... and again we will be back. Because the area is extraordinarily beautiful whole Turkana.

  • The island left the best impression you can find volcanic rocks very easily. You can climb up the slopes and see the craters of volcanoes which formed the Lake. Very nice view on the Lake Turkana, we are fortunate to be on the island at sunset, it was excellent! Recommend to visit.

  • For the westerners, enjoy this place for a beautiful African sunrise... Its a second paradise :D
  • The place is picture perfect. The sunrises n sets are breathtaking. Swimming is like in heated pool. HOWEVER, to camp there you will need to carry lots of water, cover yourself well(of course breathable) if even if it's hot don't bother to wear shorts or short sleeved tops. Plus carry an effective mosquito repellant preferably one that has Deet. The mosquitoes are menace as from 6pm.
