Maralal and Beyond|Marsabit and Beyond

Maralal and Beyond

Maralal is a frontier town, the beginning of the Great Northern wilderness and the staging post for many great adventures.

This simple town is a thriving centre for the local Samburu people, and the streets are always busy with camels, passing warriors and traders.

Beyond Maralal lies some of Kenya’s most beautiful country. Here the broad arid plains give way to the spectacular Loroghi Hills and the high, wild Matthews ranges. Dry river beds course through this land, and have become the tracks and routes of nomadic camel trains.

The wild country between Maralal and Turkana is ideal for the adventure seeker. Here in these vast empty spaces, there is freedom to explore and lose yourself in the wild.

Whether you want to take a truck to Turkana or a camel through Samburu land, this is your starting point....
