Tourist sites: Turkana County is found in the Northern region of Kenya. It is endowed with natural resources and other things that make the place attractive for holiday vacations. Here are some of those destinations.

It is the largest alkaline desert lake in the world. Imagine seeing such a treasure of global geography with your naked eye! It covers more than 6,000 kilometers square. It has three inlets namely River Omo, River Kerio and River Turkwell.
The lake’s azure-green color resulting from algae has earned it another name the ‘Jade sea’.
