After a successful week at Mpala, students are thrilled by being exposed to all the wildlife there. Beautiful giraffes, elephants and lots of antelopes. With the staring of the second week of the Ecology module, students arrived at TBI Ileret where the environment is totally different.
On our flight north, students had a chance to see one of the most beautiful lakes in Kenya: Lake Turkana. Lake Turkana is known as the Jade Sea by the local people and the name is well justified: most part of the lake is amazingly scenic. Previous field school students used to go to the Central Island of Lake Turkana where flocks of flamingoes are feeding and breeding. This year, students will experience something completely different by staying at TBI Ileret, where the Origins Field School is held for the first time.
