There are a few outfitters in Nairobi who do an overland "group" trip to Turkana. Takes about 2/days up and anther 2/days back, then whatever time at the lake. Accommodations are limited, mostly camping... so roughing it.

I have been there three times.

First time I hitched a ride on a private plane and went to Fergusons Gulf and returned on a lorry from Lodwar- that lodge is closed now I think unfortunately.

Ten years later I went on a lorry to Loyengalani with the Turkhana Bus. A great experience- the stops en route at Wamba, the escarpment, etc. were unfortgettable.

Then 2 years ago i went with my sons on a gametrackers safari- BRILLIANT. well organised. yes, you do haveto rough it a bit, but it is an nunfortgettable experience, and we also visited Marsabit game park and had two nights in Samburuy- magical camp on the river bank. Cannot recommend it highly enough. Small groups, interesting people.
