Mto Turkwel[1] (pia: Turkwell[2][3]) unapatikana katika kaunti ya Turkana nchini Kenya na unaishia katika ziwa Turkana, lililo kubwa kuliko maziwa yote ya jangwani yaliyoko duniani kote[4].

Chanzo chake ni katika Mlima Elgon, mpakani mwa Kenya na Uganda na unaitwa kwanza mto Suam.

Mara nyingi maji yake hayatoshi kufika ziwani na mto unakauka mapema.
