On Friday 19th June, 2015 I was enjoying a warm sunset at Eliye Springs Resort based on the white sand beach of lake Turkana County.
The resort is named after the local springs. It was first established in 1981. At that time the resort was made up of a few traditional huts which served as a home away from home for travelers.
The management of the resort on their Facebook page describes the resort as follows:
” This is an oasis in the desert of Turkana and an ideal place for break from pressures of life.”
I completely agree with them. After suffering from Typhoid and getting medication at the Lodwar referral Hospital I got perfect relaxation by walking along the sandy beach along Eliye Springs Resort.

If you are in Kitale, you will have to travel 350 Kilometers in order to reach Eliye Springs Resort. The route is: Kitale – Kapenguria – Marich Pass- Kainuk – Lokichar – Lodwar – Eliye Springs. The route is served by Eldoret Express, Fomoco and Dayah bus companies.
Having visited this important destination, I am now in a good company. A company of “travel masterminds” such as Manouk – a sassy girl from Rotterdam. She sang praises of Eliye Springs Resort in her blog bunchofbackpacker.com under the title: There where no one goes: Visit Eliye Springs Kenya.
