My question is, what are you doing in Ileret?
Being close to Koobi Fora, your best bet may be to stay in the National Museums of Kenya bandas. These cost 1000/- per person per night.
Otherwise, you would probably have to find accommodation at a local hoteli in the nearest town, but security may be an issue.
Otherwise, you can always take a tent and camp.
The closest hotels are in the neighbouring Ethiopia so you might want to consider getting an Ethiopian Visa before you set to travel.
Ileret is one trully amazing place. besides its close proximity to Koobi fora archaeological site, its also next to sibiloi national park, Lake turkana and the famous prehistoric petrified forest.

Places to stay are national museums bandas (very near) and KWS bandas in sibilio. the latter is quite a distance but it will afford you a tour of the petrified forest and a drive through the national park.
lleret is a good place to just get away...
It would be good in groups coz of Camps and Games...
Carry your own food coz i highly doubt if u can get any good food those sides...
Preferably carry live animals like goats and chicken to have some barbeque..
hi,of course there are places of interest to view e.g.koobi fora which is an archaelogical site,there is the national museum bandas,KWS bandas whereby you can also stay.you can also organize with your tour guide and visit the lake turkana and the sibiloi.you will also have a great time viewing the other side of Ethiopia.Am sure you will have alot of fun.hey,you can also carry camping tents if you are in a group.All the best.
There is a small Somali hotel in Ileret where you can place an order of chapati and goat - so meals are provided. There is a prehistoric site a few kilometers out of town run by Richard Leakey's family, very much worth a visit.
Ileret borders Sibiloi national park and Kobifora national museum, focussing on all the fossils found in this area, dating back beyond 1 million years. This area contains some of the most important paleontological and archaeological sites in the world. Moreover, there is the national park hosting Somali ostrich, Grevy's zebra, gerenuk and oryx. If you are looking for some cultural encounters, visit the Dasnash, cousins to the Mursi of Ethiopia.
Newly refurbished bandas can be found at Kobifora, with good showers and a kitchen (self-catering concept). You can ask a cook from the National Museums of Kenya to prepare your food. Fish is widely available, being so close to Lake Turkana.
If you need a local contact, just drop me a line, I will be glad to help you.
Enjoy your stay!
