Isolo – Marsabit – Moyale

We are now leaving the dry rural part of Kenya to approach the more lush region of the country with its highlands, waterfalls and of course Mt. Kenya. After a couple of days in the region our destination is Isiolo, a little town in the middle of no-where, with its long-deserted road that will take us to the border with Ethiopia. The desert we are crossing is the Gal Gali Desert. It’s a huge desert full of volcanic stones, sand, and very little vegetation where only people like the Samburu and other local tribes are able to survive.

This is the stretch of remote road that we were worried about due to rumors of bandits. For that very reason, the Road is very tiring to drive because your head is always alert and at the same time still pretty technical to handle with our big motorcycles even if the Chinese are now in the process to re-building it. We spent the majority of these days riding therefore the best is to post a few pictures and a little video on top of this page for you to watch and hopefully enjoy.
