Getting There & Away
As well as occasional trucks and 4WDs, Chalbi Buses now operates buses (that look like tanks) every second day between North Horr and Marsabit (KSh800) via Kalacha (KSh400). Only very rarely does anything venture to Loyangalani. There is no set price for the Loyangalani leg, but expect to pay around KSh1000.
Don’t be at all surprised if you get stuck here for anything between a couple of days and a couple of weeks. Even in the dry season the ‘roads’ are often impassable and after rain it’s completely out of the question. Whichever way you’re heading, it’s a road to adventure – blasting over the plains of darkness, destined for a sea of jade, is nothing short of magical.
