Tourist Attraction Sites
A place to visit while you’re in the Narok North constituency would be the Narok museum. The Narok/Maa museum is located in a west-north-west direction 141km from Nairobi at the entrance of Narok town. The museum, opened to the public in 1996, is housed in a building that previously served as a community hall now converted into an office, a collection room and an exhibition gallery.
The pictures and artifacts displayed at the museum serve to preserve the traditional culture of the Maasai and other Maa language speakers i.e. the Samburu of Samburu and Laikipia districts, Njemps of Baringo district and groups of the Ndorobo neighboring the Maasai of Narok and Kajiado districts.
The transport infrastructure in Narok is not up to standard besides the main road that joins Narok to other counties. As a result Narok County marked a milestone in its infrastructure development with the launch of 38 KMs of tarmac roads in Narok Town. The new roads are in 4 main sections covering the CBD, Lenana Estate, Majengo, Total area, the Maasai Mara University and the prison area. Investing in roads is a priority area to us. Getting Narok County well connected through good roads will improve service delivery, give rise to new market centers and open up closed areas for business and settlement.
Narok North constituency has 94 schools but a large number of them are primary school since only 16 are secondary.
Narok north is also lucky to have Maasai Mara University.
