Kerio Valley


The scenic view of Kerio Valley can be experienced while on the Marigat – Kabarnet Road. There are winding steep and sharp bends that present a view of the valley below. This Isolated Valley lies in a narrow, long strip approximately 80 km by 10 km wide at its widest, through which the Kerio River flows.

The Kerio Valley is famous for its elephant population of about 200 animals which tends to stay around the quite inaccessible Lake Kamnarok. It has semi-tropical vegetation on the slopes, while the floor of the valley is covered by dry thorn bush.

The valley lies between the Cherangani Hills and the Tugen Hills. The Elgeyo Escarpment rises more than 1,830 metres (6,000 ft) above the valley in places. The valley is 4,000 feet (1,200 m) deep. At the bottom of the Kerio Valley lies an interesting hotel called Sego Lodge. It lies 10 kms up a dirt track on the left (heading westwards) just opposite the road which leads into the reserved lands of the Kerio Valley, Lake Kamnorok.

The Kerio Valley National Reserve has been established since 1983 along the Kerio River to the north of Lake Kamnarok. The most comfortable time of the year is in July and August when the rains have ended and the temperatures are not excessive.
