Marafa-Hells Kitchen, Malindi

4.7
Marvel at the strange and surreal natural shapes of Marafa-Hells Kitchen, a series of ragged sandstone gorges belonging to a local Giriama community. The naturally carved stone columns and changing colors of this unusual sandstone mini-canyon have been the scene of many sacred rituals since ancient times. Combine your visit with a stop in a small village with monumental baobab trees. Note that no tours take place during daytime due to the high daily temperatures. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Malindi holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Marafa-Hells Kitchen and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
