The south-eastern coast of Lake Turkana turns into a meeting place for diverse Kenyan ethnic groups every May. The name of the lake can be translated as "a place of many trees" and therefore, the symbolism of the festival grows even more. It is a three-day carnival that celebrates the cultures of El Molo, Samburu, Gabbra, Rendile, Watta, Dasannach, Turkana and every other that live in the Jade Sea vicinity.

The colourful event presents traditional dances, singing, food, and many other authentic Kenyan attributes. This is a unique event to acknowledge the richness and history of the people of Kenya in just three days. If you are looking for the exact location, go to Loiyangalani, Marsabit County in Northern Kenya.
