"Basic but welcoming"
The swimming pool fed by a natural hot spring is something else and a god-send for a late night dip to cool down before trying to sleep in such a hot and humid environment - a ceiling fan in the room would be a major improvement. But we were not looking for nor expecting luxury here in a spot barely reached by "tourists".
The chance to visit local villages and meet the people - El Molo and Turkana - plus to see the fabled Jade Sea with our own eyes was a once-in-a-lifetime trip, though it may just entice us back again in future!" See all these reviews: 10n in Kenya

"Oasis Lodge, Loyangalani, Lake Turkana"
The Lodge is well-located in Loyangalani and a welcome haven with a (warm!) swimming pool. We understand that Mr Leshan had sent the key staff all the way up from Nairobi especially to look after us. We greatly appreciated the friendly and hospitable way we were received and treated. Our only regret was that we were unable to stay longer; at least a week is required to be able to do justice to everything there is to be seen in this wonderful place.
To be well recommended; we hope to visit again." See all these reviews: 11n in Kenya; 5n in Tanzania
