A trip along the Silk Road
For me, this trip to northern Kenya was a real adventure. The section between Marsabit and Maralal was especially exhilarating, driving through desert and semi-desert, past huge rock outcrops and extinct volcanoes, across great spreads of ancient lava, passing almost no other vehicles, and then to see, through the dust, the shimmering expanse of Lake Turkana. with its cratered islands, innumerable birdlife, and grazing zebra and topi. Add to this the range of local groups who survive in so harsh an environment, and you have a really memorable experience. - C. Buckle, UK
