Marafa Depression

  • Sandstone canyon outside of Malindi town

Marafa depression, famously known as Hell’s Kitchen is an odd sandstone canyon located just outside of Malindi town, Kenya. The local residents know it as Nyari, which is Kigiriama for “natural sacred depression” as 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.
