Galleries and Museums
The Desert Museum in Loiyangalani is set against the backdrop of the beautiful Lake Turkana, also known as the Jade Sea for its near magical colours. The museum is dedicated to educating tourists about the unique cultures of the indigenous tribes of the Turkana region.
Artefacts include traditional items used by the people living off this harsh, but beautiful land. The collection definitely focuses on their weaponry and hunting tools and interesting information boards can be found throughout this beautifully designed structure.
The museum is the official venue for the annual Lake Turkana Festival – a celebration of the area and its inhabitants' traditions and cultures.
Loiyangalani is a small town located on the eastern coast of Lake Turkana. The town was established around a fresh-water spring and is often called an oasis in the desert.
