#ExploreTurkana: A Photo Essay

What do you get when you place a group of adventurers in the most beautiful place on earth? #ExploreTurkana did, and this is what happened.

Lake Elmentaita Serena Camp

I think about weird things on evenings like these. On this one I thought about a lake, a massive lake. At some point in history, Lake Nakuru and Lake Elmentaita were a single lake.

Exploring Finch Hattons

At Finch Hattons Luxury Camp in the Tsavo, a crocodile called Jemimah tries to kill Muthuri, Dan Kiptoo falls off a bed, and a thousand hills come alive.

Two Nights in Kilaguni

You could smell the nyama choma long before you saw it. It was our first night in Tsavo, and the itinerary said we were heading out to a bush dinner.
