The Marsabit National Park is an oasis of green in this arid, desert region of Kenya. At the centre of the park is an extinct volcano – the height of which creates a microclimate that supports a huge tract of indigenous forest that in turn supports a wide variety of wildlife. The Montane forest is supplied water by thick mist which forms overnight as the hot air rises off the desert and cools. The mist often lingers till late morning.The park has many extinct volcanic craters known as Gofs.
One of the largest of these is Gof Sokorte Guda which has Lake Paradise at the bottom of it. The lake is ringed with scenic forest and the birding is fantastic. It is also a refuge for the rare Lammergeyer Vulture and is known for the diversity of its butterfly species.
The beautiful Marsabit National Park is a refuge for huge tusked bull elephants, diverse birdlife and reptiles. Hikes in the dense forest, wreathed in mist can be enjoyed along with camel rides, bird watching and visits to the singing wells.
