Cathedral Rock

Nov 12, 2021

Lake Logipi’s calm waters reflecting the sky!  Shallow (only a foot deep) and very alkali, it presents great contrast to neighboring Lake Turkana.  The two are separated by a series of cones and volcanoes, called the ‘Barrier’.

Lake Logipi, despite being so rich in sodium bicarbonate, is full of life (much microscopic) including algae which the flamingo feed on.  Golden jackals are sometimes spotted hunting the water birds!  An incredible place – hot, remote and inhospitable to man!

The iconic feature in the lake’s centre is known as ‘Cathedral Rock’ – and you can see why! It’s magnificent!
