This is a breathtaking mountain oasis in the middle of the desert. From semi desert to afromontane rainforest, this national park offers some of the most diverse habitats and breathtaking scenery in Kenya. In just a few hours of afternoon safari, we saw elephants, buffaloes, grevy's zebras, bushbucks, olive baboons, duikers, kudus (greater and lesser) and many more, despite visiting only the highest peaks of the park. Birdlife is even more outstanding, with forest, savanah, desert and freshwater species all concentrated in little areas. The potential of this park is enormous, BUT official control is insufficient. We saw big herds of camels, cattle, even signs of illegal logging in the middle of the park. I suspect poaching is still taking place there occasionally. Also, just next to the most beautiful crater lake, there is an old, decrepidated, non functioning lodge, which, properly managed, could easily rival The Ark from Aberdares or some other high-end Mt. Kenya lodge. But at the moment, it only represents an ugly relic from better times of this park.
With proper management, this park could easily rival the best parks of Kenya and also attract much more turist than it does now.

We spent 5 days in the Marsabit national park. In the park, we found that the landscape was very fine with preserved lush and dense forest.
We got into the park through the main entrance “Ahmed gate”. We learned that Ahmed was an elephant nicknamed the King of Marsabit, because he had huge tusks. It was declared a national treasure by President Jomo Kenyatta, and underwent permanent protection (by presidential decree) until his death in 1974. A life-size reproduction of the elephant Ahmed can be seen in the Kenya national museum in Nairobi.
In Marsabit national park, we saw the 3 beautiful crater lakes, including the famous Lake Paradise; there are also singing wells. We made great full day game drive, allowing us to see:
- herds of elephants with playful babies !!!
- spotted hyenas, a blakk serval cat
- other mammals, such as Grevy zebras, bushbucks, greater kuddus, herds of buffaloes
- and a lot of many birds.
We also made walking tours with a Turkana native friendly ranger with high level of knowledge on local wild fauna.
Taken together, I highly recommend to visit Marsabit national park !!!

Far to the north of Kenya, lies the Marsabit National Park. It is a densely forested mountain having three crater lakes in it. It is an oasis of green in this arid, desert region of Kenya. The lakes provide a haven for a variety of birdlife, mammals and reptiles. The park is known for its huge, impressive tusked-elephants. However, this national park is not much known for game-drives. If you are heading up to Lake Turkana, this acts as an interesting site to spend a night in. We reached Marsabit National Park at around 5.30 PM, soon after which it became dark

Spotted a hyenas in the first meters after the entrance gate, afyerwards we couldn't catch anymore animals during the visit. The view on Lake Paradise is amazing, but the entire park is not attractive as other ones in Kenya

I visited Marsabit National Park with my friends as part of a tour of Marsabit County. The road network within the park is poor following heavy rains, and trucks involved in dam construction creating huge troughs on the dirt roads. We had to turn back halfway through our trip to Lake Paradise :(

We were however able to see the beautiful lake next to Marsabit Lodge, which is abandoned and dilapidated.

Wir wollen mit unserem Reisemobil im den Marsabit Nationalpark. Eintritt ist pro Person USD 22.-. Das Übernachten im eigenen ReMo USD 35.- pro Person. Für das Auto zusätzlich USD 3.-. Zahlbar nur mit Kreditkarte. Das Hotel im Park ist geschlossen. Man kann nur eine ca. 8 km lange Piste zum Lake Paradies fahren, dort sieht man mit Glück Wildtiere.

Marsabit National Park in northern Kenya is near, of course, the town of Marsabit
If you get as far as this, you must see the extinct volcanic craters known as Gofs. Gof Sokorte Guda is the largest one and at the bottom of it there is a lovely lake with a meaningful name: Paradise Lake.
Oh, the famous Ahmed, the elephant that was famous for his very long tusks and 24 h protection, lived here.

The Park is an extremely dense wooded area so animal spotting isn’t easy. We have seen Grey’s zebras and buffaloes but we were unlucky with Colobus monkeys which live in Marsabit National Park though I would prefer to be able to confirm it and say that I have seen them with my own eyes.

The same goes for Reticulated Giraffe or lion or leopard, I’ve seen many but none here.
So the question is if I should at all mention them in the context of Marsabit National Park.

We were the only ones staying here hoping to see wildlife at the lake. Just 2 token buffalo apparently is all that ventures here now. So don't expect much here.

However The worst thing of all was the condition of the rooms. Cockroaches, numerous other bugs, crawling around and mosquitos splattered on the walls and furniture. The shower is positively disgusting and they will instructions on how to use the hot water so ended up with only a cold shower.
The the cost positively outrageous on top of the entrance free for this 1 star accommodation.
The food was very simple but not cooked well and made us ill. Don't stay here unless you want to waste money and get a lousy service.

Green, cool and lively park on a mountain, contrast to the neighboring arid and hot area. Popular for the huge tasked elephants (Ahmed the King of Marsabit had massive task weighing 67.2kg and had to be given 24hrs protection through presidential decree).

This forested park is also home to Grevy's zebras, buffaloes, greater/lesser Kudus, hyenas, Kirk’s dik-diks, reticulated giraffes, lions, leopards and baboons. There are notable species of birds.

Lake paradise, in a crater on top of the mountain, is a unique attraction. Animals are easily spotted at the lake. There is a campsite at the crater - for true adventurers.

A 4by4 vehicle required for drives within the park as the access roads within the park are major challenge. Hiking in the mountain enjoyable though must be accompanied by armed ranger.
