The Turkana district starts north of the Baringo and Samburu districts and stretches all the way up to the border of Sudan and Ethopia. To the east, the district is bordered by the famous Lake Turkana, formerly known as Lake Rudolph. Besides the National Parks, Lake Turkana has been entered on the UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites.
Lake Turkana is the largest, most northerly and most saline of Africa's Rift Valley lakes and an outstanding laboratory for the study of plant and animal communities. The three National Parks are a stopover for migrant waterfowl and are major breeding grounds for the Nile crocodile and hippopotamus. The Koobi Fora deposits are rich in pre-human, mammalian, molluscan and other fossil remains and have contributed more to the understanding of palaeoenvironments than any other site on the continent.
