As we boarded the flight to Kitale, before embarking on a drive to Turkana, my mind was indeed a blank canvas, all I knew about this gorgeous town was what I had learnt during my geography classes and here I was exploring it. The excitement was beyond my own imagination. You see, Turkana is not only the second largest county in Kenya but also a haven for so many breathtakingly beautiful sceneries. From being the home of Kenya’s largest permanent desert lake to being the home of Turkana boy ( a 1.5 million years old skeleton making it one of the oldest homo Erectus skeletons ever found hence the name ‘Origin of mankind’).
