Loiyangalani is a small town located on the southeastern coast of Lake Turkana, a frontier region in Northern Kenya. I have been to Loiyngalani twice, the first trip being September last year, whilst there I had the opportunity of visiting the Desert museum Loiyangalani.
Loiyangalani Musuem is Located on top of a hill, with a backdrop of the picturesque Lake Turkana. It was established in 2008 with the aim of highlighting the unique traditions and cultures of the people of Northern Kenya.
Reflecting the culture, natural habitat of the region, this artifact rich museum will tell you a story of the location of the eight communities living in the area, namely the Samburu, Turkana, Pokot, Rendille, Gabra, Watta, Daasanach, and the El Molo.
The museum has a wealth of material that tells the story and heritage of the region.
Besides the museum Loiyangalani offers breathtaking scenic sites of the largest desert lake in the world – Lake Turkana.
… And finally the I got to view the sunsets…
Despite the blistering temperatures and remoteness, Loiyangalani is an incredible place to visit.
