The general format of descriptions is as follows: Isiolo A2 – Xing Samburu/Wajir B9. This means that the waypoint was marked at a crossroads on road A2 to Samburu at Isiolo. The junction is with road B9, which branches to the right side (the slash divides both directions, left/right) and heads for Wajir.

The waypoints were collected in 2001-2002 using a Garmin GPS 12.
