After an arduous bus journey of about 6 hours from Nyahururu , we reached Yare Camel Camp at the setting sun. It was strikingly wild to find dozens of camels in an open enclosure beside the green camping ground and locals/military personnel's drinking beer indoor the vintage bar.

We stayed at the camp site on the way to Turkana, and it was a welcome green oasis after a long and dusty drive.
