Ferguson Gulf – Fishing Expedition

Ferguson Gulf is a huge bay full of shallow water, confined towards Lake Turkana by a sandy ridge overgrown by doum palm trees – a terrific landscape! Everybody around seems to be busy fishing, thousands of pelicans, flamingos and yellow billed storks as well as the local fishermen who practise their trade with sailing boats, canoes with outboard engines or traditional rafts which supposedly are the most ancient vessels of human kind. It all explains why the nearby town of Kalokol is the centre of Turkana’s fishing industry. At Ferguson Gulf, you can watch the work of the fishermen and accompany them as they go out to the lake, do some bird watching or simply come to marvel at the sunrises and sunsets which turn the orange waters into fluid fervor.

Ferguson Gulf – A beautiful sheltered sandy cove northwest of L. Turkana and perhaps one of the most picturesque spots on the western shores always buzzing with activity both human & avian. No entry Fee
