Top Descriptions

Though currently still a worthwhile enough experience, Hell’s Gate National Park sadly has a questionable future ahead of it, especially now that government-led fracking has (quite evidently) begun here. Rumour has it that the park may soon enough be demoted from its national status – and when that happens, who knows what will become of the resident wildlife. For now, giraffes will continue to carefully avoid the miles of piping that litters the park, and sizeable herds of zebra and eland will continue to roam the rocky and impressive landscape. Come here before it really is too late. – Daniel

Top Tips

This is one of the few game reserves which you can explore either on bicycle or by foot – and there’s even some rock climbing to be done here too. All activities can be done without a guide, apparently due to the lack of predators in the park – although what that fact actually says about the health of the area, we are left to wonder.
Bikes can be rented either from the for KES500 or (among other places) at in nearby for KES700.
