2: Samburu National Park
Morning and afternoon game drives in the park.

3: Samburu – Wamba � Elbunique
Early breakfast, wrap camp and exit Samburu by the West gate. The track is smooth and wriggles itself through thick bush as we head out of the basin. The views are now endless… we are slightly high… behind us the Laikipia escarpment dominates the basin dotted Samburu warrior with small volcanoes and characterized by lines of acacias along the laggas. Ahead, our track disappears in the horizon.

5: Ngurunit – Kaisut Desert – Kalacha
We are heading straight north, lifting a cloud of white dust behind us. In the distance a vision of a camel caravan dissolves itself between the skyline and the horizon. The air is dry, the heat intense. For lunch we’ll have to improvise a tarpaulin between our vehicles for a little shade, for the temperature is above forty-degree Celsius….Kalacha, an oasis in the middle of the desert and main water point for the Gabbra. This is our set for the night.

6: Kalacha – Chalbi Desert – North Horr � Loiyangalani
Gabbra, Borana or Somali warriors escorting their large herds of camels in search of pastures, regularly cross this part of the world.
