Turkana Expedition

The Kenya Tourism Board has organised a trip to northern Kenya. I’m honored to be among the team of travellers that will embarck in one of the most challenging road trips I’ve ever done. On Monday, 23rd April 2012, we’ll start our 7-day trip towards Turkana, Northern Kenya, by road. I’ve never visited the ares before and the first reaction upon getting the invite was excitement, followed by a chill of fear. Northern Kenya is known to be notorious with cattle rustlers (armed with guns and invading into villages, stealing cattle) but the same area boasts beautiful scenery with magnificent landscapes. It’s a photographer’s heaven. The later fact has helped me overcome the fear and take up this opprtunity to explore Kenya.

It’s a tough journey. I expect more of adventure and exploration with just enough luxury. I bet the temperatures are sky high but the best way to know is getting there.

The Route:  NAIROBI – MARALAL – LOIYANGALANI – KOOBI FORA – MARSABIT – ISIOLO

I will document the whole journey (Day 1 to Day 7) on this blog. The blog URL is mobile. It’s also a great opportunity to have a week of iPhoneography which I’ve recently developed great interest in. Follow me on Instagram and Tadaa on the links below and see the pics.

Sit back, hold on, and join me on this journey.

    I lived on Mt. Kulal overlooking lake Turkana for 12 years. Some of the best years of my life. One of the most beautiful places in the world. Say hello for me.
