Good that we have not moved on yesterday, we would have been driving deep into the night. We need nine hours for 377 kilometres from Kampala to Eldoret. With regret, we leave Uganda already after 6 days. After all, we make it before 5 o’clock to Eldoret, where we just rush into the small cheese factory, that we found on the Tracks4Africa maps.
We try eight varieties of cheese and buy eventually four varieties, + – 1 kilo. Someone who has lived a long time in Africa will understand that mostly tasteless cheeses are expensive. A few local kinds of cheese are tasteful, extremely expensive the rest is imported.
A few kilometres behind Eldoret lies the Naiberi River Camp, an “institution” in the traveller community. Situated on the banks of the Naiberi river, it has a cave-like restaurant, serving delicious meals for little money.
In the middle of the cave, an open fireplace offers a little bit of heat, friendly staff makes us realize that we are back in Kenya. We enjoy sweet and sour pork and beef chilli, we sit near the fire and go early to bed, it’s damn cold here.
