This expedition to Lake Turkana and the Museum site at Koobi Fora will be a 12 day trip. We shall have a mix of vehicles. There will be a truck from Gametrackers which can seat 20 persons comfortably. It will also carry tents, mattresses, stools, tables and all the food, the cook , as well as the armed security guards. Those who wish to take their own vehicles can do so. These must be sturdy 4WD cars with high clearance. But these cars will have to carry their own fuel from Marsabit to Koobi Fora and back to Loyangelani. And their own drinking water.
