Road Travel Options:

1.Nairobi >Isiolo>Marsabit>North Horr> Loiyangalani

As Chenevix-Trench, a colonial District Officer (DO) wrote memorably in his book, The Men who Ruled Kenya, "the North is another Place." Travelling up to the northern parts of Kenya is akin to travelling through an "Open Museum". It is a kind of a place that epitomises the notion of a "Museum without Frontiers." One cuts through a myriad of rich pastoralist culture and experiences a mosaic of modernity and customary lives which seem permanently entangled in a movement in either direction.

The Journey from Nairobi through Isiolo, then to Marsabit and Loiyangalani, offers glimpses of the cultures of the pastoralist Borana, Turkana, Samburu, Rendille, Somali, Gabra and the fisher-community of the El-Molo. The breath-taking landscape of grasslands, semi-desert scrub-land, hills and mountains dotted by herds-people tending to their precious cattle, goats, sheep and camels – a practice they have upheld religiously for thousands of years – adds to the spectacle of travelling to this "under-discovered" corner of Kenya.

Those using this option are advised to leave nairobi 3 days before the festival in order to get to Loiyangalani on time.

There are a number of Hotels,Lodges and resorts along the route:

Marsabit Town

1) Marsabit Lodge

Located 3 kilometers from Marsabit town, Marsabit Lodge is one of Kenya ’s older game lodges,dating back to 1974.

It is a simple tourist lodge on the lush shores of a forest-fringed crater lake in the remote Marsabit National Park.
Outstanding views and the exquisite peace and beauty of its location, with wildlife converging at the lake and eagles swooping through the trees makes it one of the ideal stopovers on your way to Loiyangalani.

It has a capacity of 24 rooms.
