|About Lokichogio Town|
Lokichogio, is a town in the Turkana District, northwest of Kenya, often referred to as Loki. The town lies on the A1 road to Juba, Southern Sudan and is served by the Lokichogio Airport.
It is about 30 kilometers from the international border with Sudan and is host to UN offices - part of the Operation lifeline Sudan program. More than 40 NGO’s operate in Loki, and a large hospital run by the ICRC.
Local peoples are mainly nomads of the Turkana tribe and derive their livelihood by looking after indigenous cattle.Loki is outermost Kenyan town on the border with Sudan. Kenyans from the southern part of Loki, however, maintain that Lodwar, which is about 200 kilometers south, is the last truly "Kenyan" town in the region.
At the north end of Loki, beyond the noted dry river bed, the Kenyan military has set up a border checkpoint. This is considered the "true" border between Kenya and Sudan. Beyond this point lies a road leading to Nadapal, the Sudanese checkpoint which is about thirty kilometers away. The area known as "no-man's land" is situated between these two checkpoints.
