Only spent two nights but found it a fun place to cool off. The town is literally an oasis in the middle of a volcanic isolated desert. With a deep freeze to get the beer nice an cold, and the restaurant/bar/ social area having a nice breeze flowing through it, it was a great place to cool down and enjoy the magnificent view of Lake Turkana, the Jade Sea, The rooms were excellent, nice beds and bedding. The place was nicely laid out and spacious. Steve the owner and his beautiful wife were great hosts, and with their friends coming by, it added a genuine local and friendly atmosphere. There were a number of travelers staying there at the time, which added to the ambiance.Considering the isolated location, all their prices were very fair.

I love this place, the individual huts were clean, comfortable with great showers. The staff are wonderful, really helpful and friendly. There is a fridge in the bar that has COLD drinks! pure luxury in the heat! and the best fish I've had in a long time. Ended up staying here 3 days. It really is an oasis, with a natural spring right outside the gates. Steve the owner is great, we were heading into the Ndoto Mountains after Loiyangalani & Steve called us a few days later to make sure we had reached our destination and hadn't broken down in the middle of no-where.

Having visited the El Molo people we drive to Malabo Resort to have a shower as the temperature soars to 43 C at 1pm. There is no wi-fi here and the power is available ponly at certain hours. We get a cottage ‘Cat Fish’ with twin beds. As the bathroom is a step higher than the room with only a curtain separating the accommodation, the water from the shower trickles down to the room but it doesn’t seem to be a problem specially in these temperatures. For lunch we have Nile perch, chips, vegetables and fruit. Refreshed and fed we drive to Kilimabogo village to take part in a Dance. As usual, our learned guide Julius acts as an educator and points to us the significant details in the beadwork worn by the dancers, tells us about the meaning of the facial decorations and what each dance is about. It seems that everybody enjoys it specially as Julius has the uncanny gift to make people at ease, no matter if they are girls, women or elders. They laugh and joke with him. Not only the dancers but the whole village gather around us. When we finally return to Malabo Resort, we enjoy the luxury of a shower again and go to have dinner. This time it is lamb, rice, vegetables and juice. 8: 30 we are back in our cottage, the thermometre says 35 C, it is quiet and we sleep well. The next morning it’s 32 C at 7am so we opt for a cold shower. For breakfast we get water melon and pancakes. Why not... Another exciting day ahead of us.

It was very hot and humid when I visited to attend the Turkana Festival. But this very basic accommodation is really trying hard to create a welcoming place for visitors in This remote place. Staff is friendly and the place very clean. The food is the best it can be In The midst of scarcity.

I camped here with a group of friends for 3 nights during the L.Turkana festival and to stay that our stay there was amazing would be an understatement. From the great hospitality to the endless cold refreshments, especially since the place is extremely hot. I would definitely go back.
