HELL’S GATE NATIONAL PARK

Ideal for a biking day

Hell's Gate National Park

Located northwest of Nairobi, south of Lake Naivasha, Hell’s Gate National Park gets its name from its pair of massive red tinged cliffs which frame its natural hot geysers. The spectacular scenery, complete with rock towers, volcanoes, and geysers with plumes of geothermal steam, is dominated by these sheer cliffs.

Visitors can look forward to a wide variety of activities such as: biking through this beautiful landscape, exploring the Njorowa Gorges, discovering two extinct volcanoes – Olkaira and Hobley’s, and camping under the sparkling Kenyan night sky. Popular activities include: walking safaris, mountain biking, rock climbing, hiking and game viewing. Commonly spotted wildlife include: giraffe, zebra, eland, gazelle, buffalo, zebras, hartebeests, baboons and over 100 bird species.

Best time to visit Hell's Gate

Hell’s Gate can be visited throughout the year, there is a fairly good chance to see wildlife. Because of all the outdoor activities that are provided in this park, the dry months (June-March) are probably a better time to travel.

Wildlife

African buffalo, moose, hartebeest, Thomson’s gazelle, zebra and baboons are common. The park is also home to the klipspringer antelope and the Chandler mountain reedbuck.
There are many bird species in Hell’s Gate, there are over 100 species of birds in the park, including vultures, Verreaux’s eagles, gherkins and common swifts.
