The western lakeshore

Fringed by swaying palm trees and teeming with wildlife, the windswept western lakeshore feels like an oasis in this sun-baked region, and is certainly the most obvious focus of a trip to Turkana. It is, however, fairly inaccessible – many of the attractions in the area are difficult (if not impossible) to reach by public transport, and roads between them are few. Still, these wild, windswept beaches are hard to beat for their end-of-the-world appeal, and the sense that you’ve got the vast desert lake all to yourself.
