Malindi is a town on Malindi Bay, in southeastern Kenya. It sits amid a string of tropical beaches dotted with hotels and resorts. Malindi Marine National Park and nearby Watamu Marine National Park are home to turtles and colorful fish. Arabuko-Sokoke Forest Reserve harbors elephants and more than 200 species of birds. Near the forest, the Gede Ruins are the remains of an ancient Swahili town.
Hell’s Kitchen Marafa
Hell’s Kitchen Marafa or Marafa Canyon, also known as “Cucina del Diavolo”, is a surreal place where infernal temperatures are reached which, depending on the time of day, change color. It is the largest depression in Kenya and attracts visitors precisely because of its surprising colors and its enchanting and at the same time disturbing morphology.
Hell’s Kitchen Marafa, is called by the locals “Nyari”, literally translated “the place that breaks by itself”. It is characterized by sandstone rock which, due to rain and wind, has eroded over the millennia giving life to a canyon of a thousand shades of color where pinnacles, ravines, gorges, pinnacles and stone pillars with heights alternating touch 30 meters, creating a show that has no equal.
The most fascinating view is at sunset, when the sunlight joins the color of the earth and the rocks take on different colors ranging from white, to pink, to orange, to red: a miracle of unique nature.
