♫♪♫ Highway from Hell ♪ ♫♫♪
Its official.... it's just like Equatorial Africa
Little can be said about the road to the border of Ethiopia except that the 540 kilometres of dirt road is extremely isolated, rugged, rough and tiring. The scenery is spectacular as are the people who inhabit this area and indeed with many of the horror stories prevailing of that route, either be it security or road conditions none should deter the adventurous mind, having said that, our water and food stops were brief and also road conditions are such that you should expect possible damage to your bike.
We completed the journey in three days with a full days rest in Marsabit and when all is said and done it is in fact one of the only routes between the two countries and the most preferred.
