Day 2 didn’t start off too well, we all overslept including Seronei, our driver. It was one of those mornings where I heard my alarm but I was so deeply asleep I thought the alarm was part of my dream.
The drive from Kitale to West Pokot was exhausting to say the least. It was a 1.5 hour drive to Makutano to pick up our location scout, Simon (aka Pokot’s finest, I kid you not) after which we proceeded to Kacheliba.
We then had to endure an even longer drive to Kacheliba on a dirt road that has a section called ‘Slow’. That alone should tell you how bad the road was. It is a dirt road frequently used by huge trucks ferrying sand and is best tackled in 4WD drive vehicle.
