Turkana is a beautiful yet unforgiving place. The terrain will take your breath away, as well as your car’s shocks, springs and about any moving part.
In the 1960s and 70s, teams the National Museums of Kenya were sent to explore the eastern shores of Lake Turkana in the best 4 X 4 X far. They excavated fossils in areas where no car had been to before and while at it, carved out roads that are used to this day. These are the machines that made sure the teams led by Dr Richard Leakey shared their discoveries with the world, making Sibiloi the Cradle of Mankind. These Landrover Defenders now remain abandoned at the Koobi Fora Museum in Turkana.

0.1 - A Walk into the past

Also still standing are the two monuments in honour and memory of the Africans who served in the World War I.
