Lake Turkana Lodge is quaint and charming lodge situated on the western shores of Lake Turkana. It's ideal for fishing for Nile perch and tiger fish in the lake, and visits to Central Island. Situated on a spit at the mouth of Ferguson's Gulf, the lodge is surrounded by water on three sides and access is by boat across the gulf to its sandy beach.
Visitors encountering this remote lake, regardless of the number of previous visits, continue to sense that awe-inspiring atmosphere which has become synonymous with its romantic name - the Jade Sea.
Accommodation & Room Types
Accommodation comprises of 16 individual rustic timber cabins of size 24 x 10 feet, each of which is self-contained with a bathroom (shower/toilet/sink) and a large verandah (size 24 x 10 feet) affording a magnificent view of the lake. There is also one twin family cabins unit one and two-bed roomed VIP unit. Water supplied to the rooms and common facilities is alkaline and untreated - pumped directly (when the pumps are working) from the lake. Expansive lake view gives an impression of an oceanfront location.
Currently the lodge management is only offering basic accommodation services. However, simple but delicious meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) will be available and can be paid for directly at the lodge. There will also be a reasonable well stocked bar with beer, sodas and mineral water and limited wines (no spirits).
Clients can carry their own food and drinks if they wish so and lighting of course (open flames in the wooden Bandas is prohibited). It is also possible to camp at designated points on the lodge site. Mosquitoes/insects can be a bother during periods of the day when there is no wind.
