The Centre is situated in one of Kenya's remotest regions, well off the main tourist circuits. The spectacular scenery ranges from the extensive open moorland in the High Cheranganis, through coniferous, bamboo and riverine forest, to savannah scrub and semi-desert. The diverse range of ecological zones is reflected in the variety of flora and fauna. Thus the Centre is an ideal base for independent travellers and tourists wishing to spend some time in this fascinating but little known corner of Kenya.

Using the Marich Pass Centre as a base, numerous opportunities for two, three and four day excursions are available.
