A range of accommodations; ours was a "Boma", a traditional Turkana round hut but with a complete bathroom. The Boma was right on the beach. It's very very hot in Turkana and there was no breeze ... so the temperatures in the Boma were around 35 degrees at night. This is comfortable but very rustic accommodation. We did an excursion...

We stayed for two nights in the resort and it was really nice. It is located right on the beach of lake turkana, so you could wake up with a nice swim (and jump in to cool down a couple of times per day because it was really hot out there). We slept in a manyatta, which was basic and...

Dear Lisa, Thank you very much for your positive review. We were grateful to host you and that you enjoyed your stay despite the hungry mosquitoes.......

This place, run by a friendly European, is difficult to describe, it is fascinating and unusual. One of the best places in Kenya. The flight to Lodwar was relatively inexpensive, Lodwar is worth a look around before heading out to the Lake. The drive is an adventure in itself, dry dusty and sandy, passing many small villages (where the locals...

My two days spent at Elias Springs, was certainly the highlight of our adventure in the Turkana area. Comfortable, fantastic food, very friendly staff, cold beers, great conversations, special locally brewed liquors, boat rides on the lake, swimming one the shores of the lake at sunrise, lolling about in the natural waterhole pool surrounded by palms. I will be not...

After a long drive through the desert in a 4x4 from Lodwar airport, you arrive at the resort and for a second you think you are in Zanzibar. Peaceful beach, palm trees, cool water of the Turkana. I stayed for only a weekend, but wish I had more time. There are several options for accommodations (rooms, tents), but the best...

Dear Marlow, Thank you very much for your positive review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us.
