Welcome to Maralal
Maralal is the kind of place where you should spend some time. After all, the town’s most famous former resident was one of the greatest explorers of the 20th century, Wilfred Thesiger, and if he decided that Maralal was the perfect place for retirement, then it must be doing something right. Yet, few people choose to take the time to enjoy it, most stopping only for a night en route to Lake Turkana. The lucky ones tend to be those using the erratic public transport, as they end up delayed here for enough time to appreciate the town.
