Omo Valley-Lake Turkana route southbound - looking for buddies for a convoy

Hello all,

Brett and I are keen to do the Omo Valley / Lake Turkana route from Ethiopia into Kenya at the end of May / start of June, provided the roads are ok. It looks like a really fantastic route, and we’d do anything to avoid the road from hell from Marsibit to Nairobi!!



We really only want to do the Lake Turkana route in convoy with another vehicle, so thought I’d put a post up here to see if there is anyone else who is heading south and would like to join forces? If so, send me through a PM on here or get in touch via our website contact us | two turkeys and a rope | Ness and Brett's overland adventure from London to Cape Town
We'll hang out at Wim's in Ethiopia to try and find some likely candidates as well, but its always good to know in advance if anyone is keen.


We are currently in Egypt and hope to take the ferry into Sudan on the 25th April.

Out of interest, has anyone done the Lake Turkana route recently?Any news on road conditions / security?


Many thanks
Ness

Hi there,
Were hoping to hit this next week if anyone is around and wants to travel in convoy.
also, if anyone has done it recently it would be great to hear what the roads are like. :-)
Cheers
Ness

Kia ora,
Did you see this, which is the reverse of what you want to do?
