Lake Turkana Festival

The Lake Turkana Festival will take place for the 6th consecutive year in Loyangalani town; on the shores of the awe-inspiring Jade Sea this May 2013. It is here where the 10 ethnic groups of the Lake Turkana region; El Molo, Rendille, Samburu, Turkana, Dassanach, Ghabra, Borana, Konso, Wata and Burji demonstrate through song and dance their unique differences and traditions.

In this remote and forgotten region; we are also made aware of the challenges faced by these minority tribes which include drought, environmental challenges, poor infrastructure and wrangling amongst each other. Thus whilst we awe at their impressive dress and ornaments and study their artifacts and way of life in the dramatic landscape that makes up the north of Kenya; the underlying goal remains and continues to be the promotion of peace and furthermore the appreciation of these fascinating tribes.

We are offering an exciting, adventurous and informative cultural tour on the shores of the Jade Sea (Lake Turkana)!

The tour also visits the Samburu Game reserve which is a fascinating park to visit with its peculiar mix of savanna and semi-arid landscape where the Ewaso Nyiro River forms the life line for the parks animals which include lions, numerous elephants, gerenuk, Grevys Zebra and various other species.

Happy Earth Day!

Earth Day is an annual day on which events are held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection. Earth Day is observed on April 22 each year. The April 22 date was designated as International Mother Earth Day by a consensus resolution adopted by the United Nations in 2009. Earth Day is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network, and is celebrated in more than 192 countries every year.

How to make this day count?
It is the simple things that show you care about the Earth and it's environment. There many conservancies and Environmental bodies that have competitions and "donate" programmes that you could contribute to, such as UNEP,WWF and many more!

You could also just plant a tree, clean up by picking up litter in you area or simply send and E-card with a special Earth day message!
