I am a solo traveler making my way south from Ethiopia to Kenya via Moyale.
I am in Addis at the moment and plan to make my way south through the Rift and Omo Valleys during the next two weeks.
I plan to be in Moyale approximately December 8, give or take a few days.
If anyone's interested in joining, post a reply or send me a message.

I'm heading out of Addis in about a week to head down to Nairobi by bike. Can you provide an update on (a) security between Moyale and Marsabit and (b) where does the tarmac get to now (as far as I can see on the internet, its about 100kms north of Isiolo.

As far as security is concerned- no problem. I traveled at night with a local lorrie from Moyale to Marsabit and felt fine.
I didn't go through Isiolo because I went to Lake Turkana, so I can't say anything about the road.
I was traveling with a guy who was with a motor bike and he loaded it on a lorrie all the way to Isiolo for fear of ruining his shocks on the bumpy road.
Hope I was helpful.

Can you tell me a bit about how you got from Marsabit to Lake Turkana? I am planning an Ethiopia/ Kenya trip in May/June and would like to visit Lake Turkana after Ethiopia. The guidebooks make it seem like I would have to wait for days to get a truck from Marasabit to the Lake. Any advice is appreciated!
