The small town of Marsabit sits on the side of a 6300-sq-km shield volcano, the surface of which is peppered with 180 cinder cones and 22 volcanic craters, many of which house lakes – or at least they do when the rains have been kind. While the town is less attractive than its surrounds, which also comprise the enormous 1500-sq-km Marsabit National Reserve and the smaller Marsabit National Park, it’s an interesting and lively place, thanks to colourful nomads passing through and a lively market.
