Getting There & Away

Fly540 (www.fly540.com) and Safarilink (www.flysafarilink.com) both fly from Nairobi to Lodwar Airport (US$150, two hours) and there are airstrips in Kalokol and Eliye Springs if you charter your own plane.

The road from Kitale to Lokichar has been completed, but north of Lokichar it is still very poor. If you are going to drive, make sure you have a 4WD and all essential supplies in case you break down.

There are no matatus that service the route, but there are daily buses running from Lodwar to Nairobi (KSh2500, 16 hours), Eldoret (KSh2000, 12 hours) and Kitale (KSh2000, 8½ hours).
