Maralal is located about 350 Km from Nairobi via Nyahururu.  It can easily be accessed by air. The town is served by two airstrips.  Kisima airstrip, 20 km south of the town is suitable for larger aircrafts.  Maralal is 160Km from Baringo and 185 Km from Isiolo via Wamba.  Public transport is available from Nairobi, Isiolo, Nanyuki and Wamba.  Public transport is extremely tedious since they use toyota Hiace cars which are not suited for the rough roads.  A 4WD, preferably a landcruiser is best for these parts of the country.  It will take you approximately 5 hours by Land-Cruiser to do 185 Km from Maralal to Isiolo.
