  • The experience in the park by bicycle is beautiful, in a nice environment. Too bad the second part is on a paved road surrounded by warehouses and geothermal power plants that spoil the experience...

  • A memorable and extraordinary tour. The park took measures to keep visitors safe as the gorges were closed during our visit for safety reasons and to avoid flash flooding accidents. The cliffs are breathtaking and spectacular. We enjoyed the natural beauty and atmosphere as we took up bike riding, rock climbing and the game drive. The dusty roads are perfectly complemented by some stretches of paved roads with views of Geothermal drilling sites. Epic!!!
  • Incredible in all ways and definitely worth the trip. Moi South Lake road was redone so it's a smooth drive. A bit pricey given the activities within the park are not catered for in the park fees. Community fees to trek along the gorge ranging from 2000 to 4000 (per group) depending on the length of the hike. Then a per person entrance fee into the geothermal spa.
  • Amazing place!!! Beautiful nature, clean air, possibility to climb on the rocks!!! You can get there by foot or by cycling, also there is a nice market with different Masai hand crafts with a very good prices. Enjoy your stay in beautiful Kenya!!!
  • I loved the experience, starting from the biking experience at the entrance down to the gorge and also our tour guide in the park Gadaffi was awesome at his job. Kelvin who picked me up from my apartment and took me and some other tourist to see the Hell's gate and the Lake was a very nice fellow. He was very vocal and friendly. It was a 10/10 experience for me.
  • Hells Gate National Park is one of the best national parks I've ever visited. They have tons of hiking trails and also amazing tour guides. There tons of animals such as zebras, lions, giraffes, hippos and buffalos. They also are right next to a Geothermal Spa.
