It is 45 degrees and the gale force winds that began when we crossed the northern end of the Chalbi Desert three days ago are still going strong. The view makes up for it all - 'The Jade Sea'. We are at Lake Turkana in Northern Kenya, the largest desert lake in the world. The blue-green comes from algae and keeps altering with the light. Getting here we came through some amazing scenery, including some sections of volcanic desert that reminded us of Iceland. This morning the wind caused white caps which meant we could not take the boat out (fine by us as this is the home of the largest concentration of Nile Crocodiles in the world) so we went by land to an El Molo village. These are the smallest ethnic group in Kenya and live by fishing with a lifestyle hardly changed by the 21st Century. They and the Turkana people appear to be dressed up for the 'tourists' - but there are no tourists. Gametrackers have their own camp beside the Lake where accommodation is in the traditional igloo shaped palm huts of the Turkana. If you want to go where few do, this is the safari for you. One day we traveled for five hours without seeing another vehicle.
