The South Island is the southernmost of three volcanic islands within Lake Turkana in northern Kenya, at 11 x 5.5 km plus smaller islands around the main exposed landmass, seen here in this September 2019 Planet Labs satellite image monthly mosaic (N is at the top). Lava flows form much of the surface and a fissure runs along the center of the island. Smaller cones and craters are also visible, with a larger crater at the northern end of the island.
