Hell's Gate National Park

Hell’s Gate is unique among Kenya’s parks, as you are allowed to walk or cycle unguided across its breadth. There’s dramatic scenery, with looming cliffs, gorges and basalt columns. Marking the eastern entrance to Hell’s Gate Gorge is Fischer’s Tower, one of the park’s many popular rock-climbing sites.

It is characterised by diverse topography and geological scenery. It is an important home of the lammergeyer. Hell’s Gate has two gates that are used by visitors – the main Elsa Gate and the Olkaria Gate. The latter also serves the Olkaria Geothermal Station that is located inside the National Park.

Hell’s Gate National Park covers an area of 68.25 square km and is situated in the environs of Lake Naivasha about 90 km from Nairobi. The park is 14 km after the turnoff from the old Nairobi-Naivasha highway.

Attractions include Game viewing, raptor nesting in cliffs, spectacular gorge walks, hot springs, scenic landscape and the Maasai Village. The gigantic geysers gush mightily as you drive through the vast Ol-Karia Geothermal Station while the white sulphuric fumes ascend high beautifully speckling already stunning scenery.
