At the Eliye Springs Resort you will find the Boma, a hotel banda, which is modeled after the traditional straw huts of Turkana, the local tribe. Enjoy the first hours at the beach. In the late afternoon, visit the nearby fishing village of Longelech and learn how the Turkana operate traditional “shore” -fishing, river fishing. The fishermen prepare freshly caught fish on request at the beach.

Visit an authentic boma and learn how the Turkana make their diverse body jewellery and experience the way of life of this nomadic tribe. In Nariokotome visit the old Spanish mission station with its gardens and plants. The place, however, gained its fame only by the paleoanthropologist Richard Leakey whose team discovered the almost complete skeleton of a 1.6 million-year-old prehistoric species Homo erectus in the Nariokotome river in 1984 near the lake shore. The bone remnants came from a boy about nine years old. Visit the monument with the replica of the Turkana boy and visit the excavation site. Then return to Eliye Springs.
