South Turkana National Park

South Turkana National Park is a rugged and very beatiful expanse of land with very few visitors. Consisting of dense thorn bushes and riverine forestes, the landscape has a great variety, especially away from the seasonal riverbeds.

Althrough it is low on plains game, it is worth a visit for the large expanses of mixed vegetation and the landscape.
