The Turkana Basin Field School for Fall 2013 has begun!
The students made their long journey to Kenya from New York and set off on a short safari into the Great Rift Valley to Lake Elementeita, Lake Nakuru and Lake Naivasha.
We started at Lake Elementeita in the Rift Valley where we went for a short walk in the evening. All of the Kenyan central Great Rift Valley lakes are particularly high at present. This is mainly due to the large amounts of rainfall that have been experienced over the past couple of years.
