Malindi,Marafa Hells Kitchen Excursion is a half-day tour to a mini-canyon officially known as Hell’s Kitchen located 1 hour’s drive from Malindi town. There is nothing evil in Malindi’s Hell’s Kitchen but a very hot little canyon. The site is located in the town of Marafa a small unassuming village with conspicuous baobab trees. The Depression is an odd sandstone canyon. Known locally as Nyari – “the place broken by itself” – it was once a great sandstone ridge worn by wind, rain, and floods into a series of jagged gorges. The layer-cake colors of the sandstone reveal whites, pinks, oranges, and deep crimsons, making the gorge particularly striking at sundown when tones of the ribbed sandstone gullies are highlighted and mirrored by those of the setting sun. Sunset is particularly evocative and we recommend planning your trip in the afternoon so as to finish the day with a truly moving moment: it is as if the rocks have caught fire! Enjoy the nature walk in the evening and later on, you will be able to observe baboons and hyenas in that place before a magic sunset. The best time to visit is in the afternoon after lunch. After the beautiful and informative walking tour of the place with a guide, you will be welcomed to rest on the benches around as you enjoy the most beautiful sight of Sunset in Africa. Enjoy a minute-by-minute setting of the sun as it bids goodbye to the day, the colors of the African sunset and the variety of soils at hell’s kitchen will leave you with tears of joy. It’s an Amazing site. Notes. * Marafa Hells Kitchen excursion duration is 4 Hours * Hell’s Kitchen is located in Marafa, a town approximately 45 minutes from Malindi Town * Best Time to Visit: early morning and late afternoon. Hell’s Kitchen is best visited after 2:30 pm as during mid-day the place gets so hot therefore highly recommended to visit later in the afternoon when the temperatures are a little lower for you to enjoy the experience fully
