Marich Pass Field Studies Centre is a must-visit if you're planning a trip to Kenya. A small sanctuary in West Pokot, Marich Pass is the perfect place to stay while you visit the surrounding villages and small towns. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, including arranging local guides for informational wildlife and culture tours. Food was home cooked, fresh, and delicious. The huts were very comfortable. Highly recommended for guests of all ages!

Came here as part of a field studies visit with my university and if I am ever in this part of the world again I will return here without a doubt! Accommodation is basic as you would expect but the bandas are located in beautiful surroundings, with trees and monkeys all around, overlooking the river. The showers are cold but this isn't a problem as it's so hot anyway. The staff were so nice and the food was absolutely delicious.
This is off the beaten track but 100% worth the detour!

It says 'solo' on the type of visit but this was a school trip and we were a group of 37 who visited this wonderful place in July.
We had a lovely welcome from Paul who ensured, along with Hedat, his wonderful mum, that we were looked after throughout the trip.
The bandas are in a superb location within a forest which is on the banks of a river, which the students loved.
Students stayed in bandas that were very basic (no electricity and toilets were in separate bandas) but it was just like camping with comfortable beds. Mosquito nets are also provided.
The staff stayed in the bandas with electricity and en-suite so be aware of this when booking. Be prepared for cold showers but as the weather is warm anyway, that was not a problem.
It was entertaining to watch the monkeys coming down from the trees in the daytime and they will leave you alone as Paul encourages people not to feed them.
Hedat is a wonderful cook and we looked forward to her delicious food each day.
Whilst we stayed at the centre, we visited a local school, got to speak to local villagers to see how they lived, visited the Wei Wei valley for swimming and climbed Mount Koh (tough but rewarding).
The local guides that we had for our stay were very friendly and knowledgeable. The students learned so much about Pokot life from them.
The BBQ with goat on the last night was just a great end to our trip. Paul set up chairs and a fire on the beach for us and the setting as well as the food was perfect.
This is a great place for people from all walks of life including university students, schools, couples and families.
I will definitely return but next time, with my family.

Between various places in Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda and DRC, this is the best one I have visited. The grounds are gorgeous and you can walk right out into the Moruny river bed and see the surrounding mountains. It's a very quite, peaceful, and safe location with a 24 hour guard and enclosing fence. The staff was great and extremely helpful. There is a big kitchen that produces well prepared meals and someone is always around if you need anything. There are self-contained bandas, larger dorm-style rooms, and plenty of flat camping ground. If you are in the area it is definitely worth a visit. It was one of the highlights of our trip.

The self contained Bandas ( with showers and toilets) are large and spacious , the whole place is under great Acacia trees and the river is in five minutes walk. It is a great place and highly recommended for individuals as well as families, very comfortable but also part of nature. Dinners are superb!
( It is also easy to reach)
