After Marsibit the road really became challenging. Took 9 hours to do 250 km!!
Here is one of the volcanic craters responsible for the lava plateau that resulted in this shocking road:
Apart from the hostile road and climate, this camel herder in the middle of no-where was very aggressive. I think he wanted more money to have his photo taken.
Shade - very scarce here.
In the middle of the desert a small hamlet with a pub! Did I need that!!
Red soil and green shubbery as one leaves the desert behind.
Reached camp on the border town of Moyale. Camped at the Kenyan Wildlife Society.
