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 but this time i experienced the park in all its glory.

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?

2.Jirime Hotel& Resort

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
