The Lake Turkana Cultural Festival

The lake Turkana Festival takes place annually in Loiyangalani, a small town located on the south-eastern coast of Lake Turkana. The name means “a place of many trees” in the native Samburu tongue and is home to the El Molo, an almost extinct community, amongst other communities. Its main industries include fishing, tourism and gold panning. It is fast becoming a popular tourist destination in Northern Kenya, as the surrounding El Molo and Turkana villages, amongst others, offer unique cultural experiences.

The Lake Turkana Festival is worth attending as you explore this northern frontier and enjoy the myriad of colorful cultures. The 3-day carnival is a celebration of the rich cultures of El Molo, Samburu, Gabbra, Rendile, Watta, Dasannach, and the Turkana.
