Samburu’s beauty is admirable, landscape unspoilt and all maters road trips, Samburu is your place. Am always thrilled to hit the road towards and past Samburu as the journey always reminds me how beautiful my country is not forgetting the smooth ride to Marsabit.
I decided to do this post after my second visit to Marsabit National Park. In my first visit i never got to explore much, over my second trip i experienced the park in all its glory. In my recent third visit i brought a better camera😀. You’ll notice a huge difference in the the images. I chose to retain the old ones for memories sake.(2013,2016, 2020)
I am always excited every time am on an adventure,i like capturing the moments from when the journey begins to its very end.
This particular shot was captured between Mt Ololokwe and the junction to Wamba
Somewhere past mt Ololokwe we stopped and i took advantage of the very clear road.
By now you should probably know i have a thing for lone trees,i can’t really tell what it is about them,may be symbolism for strength but i do find them cute.I actually have a favorite lone tree in The complete wilderness
Hello can i have one goat?hahaha. Curious faces.I bet its on rare occasions they find people take interest of their surroundings.And here i was with my camera
Welcome to Marsabit National Park,the park in the desert A female ostrich in the park,it would have been a male were it blackLets take a game drive,i hope you didn’t expect some very dry place or some desert like kind of park.The vegetation comes close to what you’ll find in Mt Kenya National Park, quite beautiful.
Where to stay
Marsabit has grown alot since my first and third visits. This’s a recommendation i did back in 2016.
1. Marsabit Lodge
Marsabit Lodge is a simple tourist lodge on the lush shores of a forest-fringed crater lake in the remote Marsabit National Park that dates back to the 1970’s. The few staff are wonderfully hospitable.The main area is designed around a water catchment area, where Buffalos and Elephants gather at night.How awesome is that?
A view from the restaurant
North of Marsabit town on the road to Moyale is Jirime Hotel& Resort. When you travel to such a region, where finding proper space to shower, eat and sleep sounds a tough affair, you will thank the owner of this property for erecting this hotel in such a beautiful yet challenged region.Their Meals are fresh and delicious,something i loved about the place plus their staff are very welcoming.Again if you on your way to Moyale this will be your perfect stay
And just to add, if you are just passing by, Saku restaurant is a decent, very clean restaurant for lunch or dinner.
Usiogope kwenda Marsabit. It’s easily accessible(barabara ni safi kabisa) and very scenic.
It’s Always a pleasurehaving you here and i hope you found alittle inspiration to give this county a go.
