South Island (right) is the southernmost and largest of the three volcanic islands in Lake Turkana. The island (sometimes referred to as Hohnel Island) contains numerous cones and rises 320 m above the lake surface. Lava flows erupted from a N-S fissure extending the 11-km length of the island. An eruption from a scoria cone on South Island was witnessed during Count von Teliki's 1888 expedition.
