While North Eastern Kenya is known for being a bit drained up with its rugged terrains and tracts of desert and semi-desert areas, Mandera has existed somewhat in its shadow. But just hours after arriving in this compact, laid-back region, you feel a change to the rustic breeze & equatorial sun. Experience the beautiful mélange of wide skies, intense colors and brilliantly sparkling stars at night.
Until recently Mandera was a fairly small border town servicing the local community. Today Mandera town is the capital and largest town in Mandera County. This northern county is mostly is semi-arid with a very little amount of rainfall and very high temperatures.
