Lake Turkana Festival: Usually around May
With direct flights into nearby Lodwar, Kenya’s northern Turkana region is opening up to tourism and for visitors to the region the annual Lake Turkana Cultural Festival is an event not to be missed! The festival was proposed by the local community of Loiyangalani back in 2008, and has since become an important cultural festival on Kenya’s annual events calendar. The festival takes place in May each year and celebrates the diversity of Kenya’s culture with unique performances and demonstrations by ten ethnic communities from Marsabit County: El Molo, Rendille, Samburu, Turkana, Dassanach, Ghabra, Borana, Konso, Wata and Burji. Each tribe showcases its culture by performing dances, songs and rituals in their traditional tribal dress before the stunning backdrop of Lake Turkana.               laketurkanaculturalfestival.com/
