Lake Turkana – The Great Rift Valley
Lake Turkana is one of the worlds’ largest desert lakes and lies within the Great East African Rift Valley. Lobolo Camp has been built on the shores of the lake and is the perfect location from which to explore the saline shores that are strewn with ancient artifacts.
The area was once though to be the cradle of mankind and to this day still manages to reveal archaeological discoveries along the fossil lined shores of the lake. With three boats at the camp the possibilities to explore the area is limitless and the lake is also an important stop over for migrant water fowl and other bird life.
The camp is not your typical safari destination but for guests that are avid birders, keen fishermen or who find the archaeology fascinating, this is the perfect place to visit. The main guest area at the camp is an open sided tent with palm trees’ scatter around and in between the guest tents. Despite the location, meals here were delicious with a variety of fresh ingredients.
Lobolo Camp has 8 meru styled tents, 6 are twins while 2 are doubles. All have a spacious en-suite bathroom with hot water, toilet and basins.
The tents are situated within a Doum palm grove and all have views out over the sandy beach, the lake waters and the mountains in the distance. In the evenings, take a chair outside or lie down on the sand, the views of the Milky Way are incredible!
The camp is not suitable for children under 5 years of age.
