A recent camel caravan that was done by communities living along Ewaso Nyiro River. They trekked from Laikipia to Archer’s Post in Isiolo and Merti to Archer’s. They were from Samburu, Laikipia and Isiolo. These Morans trekked for a worthy cause. They sensitized others on the importance of security and using water from Ewaso Nyiro.
Merti is a district in Isiolo County. It’s about 520 km east of Nairobi. Tarmac road ends in Isiolo and rest of journey needs a powerful four-wheel drive in the thickets and rocks, all rough terrain.
