For anyone who is planning a similar journey through Ethiopia in the near future, here are a few helpful Kenyan facts and figures.

Moroto in northern Uganda is just over 200 kilometers from Lake Turkana due west. On the way we would have to go to the customs office in Lodwar again, have our carnet stamped and then it would be time to say bye bye Kenya.

It seemed a shame to have raced through the Turkana three weeks ago. Getting our entry stamps as soon as possible then had priority. Now we had time and so drove back to Lake Turkana.

With the help of ioverlander, an app which we've just discovered we found the spot we were looking for. Dunga Hill Camp on the outskirts of Kisumu and on the shores of Lake Victoria.

Our next destination was somewhere, anywhere on the shores of Lake Victoria where we hoped to find a nice spot to relax and stay a few days. Getting there took us two pleasant days driving through the Mara.

The weather couldn't have been better and as we neared Kimana we had a magnificent view of the Kilimanjaro. Its highest peak is the Kibo, 5895 meters above sea level and the highest in Africa. The next morning was overcast and remained so for most of the day. That didn't disturb us though and the wildlife seemed to relish the cool air and turned out in abundance as we drove through the Amboseli.

At the Airport in Eldoret we finally had our passports stamped and were now legally in the country. Nairobi was just round the corner and so first of all we decided to have the van sorted out at the Jungle Junction, a well known overlander campsite and workshop. A very wise person once said “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”

The police checkpoint was across the plain upon another hillock. We had arrived in Kenya but had no idea where the border exactly was. Presumably at the military camp we had just passed. Todonyang lay a few Kilometers farther on. There we could refuel and possibly stay the night. Soon thereafter however, we had completely lost our way. Jambo Kenya!!!
