Lake Logipi

Lake-Logipi-in-Suguta-Valley

Lake Logipi is a minor alkaline lake that lies at the northern end of the arid Suguta Valley, south of Lake Turkana. Its shores are very barren and entirely enclosed by mountains. Lake Logipi is separated from Lake Turkana by the Barrier volcanic complex, a group of young volcanoes that last erupted during the late 19th Century or early 20th Century.

Within Lake, Logipi is 3 islands that are also quite barren near the east shore. The lake is fed by 2 rivers.

One can see the saline hot springs as they discharge their hot water on the northern shoreline of Lake Logipi and at Cathedral Rocks near its southern limit. These hot springs help to maintain water at times of extreme aridity. During the rainy season, the lake is also recharged from the Suguta River which flows northward along the Suguta Valley, periodically forming a temporary lake, Lake Alablab, that unites with Logipi.
