Lake Turkana National Park is situated on the Ethiopia /Kenya border. Africa’s longest Rift Valley Lake. The Great Rift Valley is a symbolic relic of the massive upheavals in the earth’s crust some 10 million years ago which opened the world’s largest geological divide stretching over 3,500 miles from Danilil depression at Ethiopia’s northern Red Sea coast line to Mozambique. Turkana has the largest number of crocodiles in the world - more then 10,000. A number of pre-historic human fossils have been found here including the Australopithecus.
Lake Turkana has a good number of huge crocodiles. You can get there on an adventures trip by road (3 days) or by charter flight and stay at a lodge. Good numbers of crocodiles can also be seen in the Masai Mara in the Mara River or in the Grumeti River in the Serengeti (Western Korridor). Masai Mara and Serengeti can be visited on a safari in Kenya or Serengeti or if you wish both on a cross border safari.
Huge pools of crocodiles could be seen sun bathing on the Mara river but the largest concentration of crocodiles could be seen on the Lake Turkana up in the north.
