Northern & Eastern Area
Kenya’s rugged and dusty northern region with its breathtaking landscapes is one of Africa’s largest wilderness areas, steeped in cultural heritage and history. It offers the outdoor and 4x4 enthusiast unforgettable adventures.
Though the Northeast of Kenya is semi-arid and has a hot desert climate, there is a very fertile, farming region around the game rich Tana River which flows from its source in the Aberdare Range and Mount Kenya over 708km into the Indian Ocean at the settlement of Kipini in Kenya’s coastal province. The market centre and town of Garissa is situated right on the river banks and offers a choice of accommodation ranging from hotels to guesthouses.
Travelling further inland in north-westerly direction you will reach Marsabit with its national park and reserve. Marsabit town lies in a wooded area which is known for its crater lakes as well as volcanoes, and is situated southeast of the Chalbi Desert on the extinct volcano of Mount Marsabit. From here you can travel on tar all the way to Moyale at the border to Ethiopia.
