Ferguson's Gulf

© noheadimg

Ferguson's Gulf is the most accessible part of Lake Turkana's shore, but it is not particularly beautiful. Along the lake's shore, countless water birds, including flamingoes, can be seen. There are also hippos and crocodiles. Nearby is a small fishing village with several grass huts.

There is a lodge, where launches can be hired to visit the Central Island National Park. It is cheaper to ask local fishing men to take you there though. Beware of the lake's squalls, as they can be quite dangerous.

There is a lodge in Ferguson's Gulf. It used to be situated on an island, but the water levels of Lake Turkana have fallen so far over the years, that it is possible to drive to the lodge.
