Where is Turkana?

Turkana is a few degrees north of the equator, in an isolated region in Northwest Kenya, Africa, where daytime temperatures regularly exceed 100 degrees F.
It sits on the southern borders of Sudan and Ethiopia. Turkana is approximately the size of Ireland, or five times the size of the state of Connecticut.

Turkana is cut off from the rest of Kenya by mountains, and that isolation has been reinforced by a policy for much of Turkana's modern history of prohibiting visitors to Turkana.

Turkana also is home to Lake Turkana, the world's largest permanent desert lake; however, the lake is also the world's largest alkaline lake, with such high levels of mineral salts as to make the water un
drinkable.
