is a pleasantly dusty rural frontier town lies on the main road north to Lake Turkana, the gateway to Northern Kenya

The town is situated in a broad open valley, flanked to the east especially by gentle forested hills. The road up here passes through some some decent wildlife areas and there is also a small animal sanctuary close by the town itself.

Over the first weekend of August each year a camel regatta of some repute is held here. The professional event is a serious race, but the amateur race is rather more fun and adventurous visitors are welcome to hire a camel and join in.

We love the remote wilderness areas of Northern Kenya, the scenery really is quite remarkable in parts. However visitor numbers are exceedingly low, largely due to political instability in the region and the near constant threat of Somali bandits.

Since we are not presently able to operate any overland trips to the north, we very rarely have occasion to recommend Maralal for inclusion in trips.

Maralal Safari Lodge ... is a the leading accommodation in the area.

The only way that we are presently able to access the northern region is by light aircraft out of places such as Sarara Camp further to the south, whose experienced owners, the Bastard family, are always aware with the current situation and can make and change plans accordingly.

These flying expeditions can last anything from a few hours to several days, depending on how much of this remote region you want to explore.

Such trips are usually combined with parts of the Kenya North region, notably in the Mathew's Range, Laikipia North, Samburu, Il Ngwesi Valley, Lewa Downs and Meru areas, as well as the Maasai Mara way off to the southwest.
