Hell’s Gate National Park
The park lies south of Lake Naivasha, north west of Nairobi, about 1 hour 30 minutes drive from the capital. Named for the intense geothermal activity within its boundaries, the Hell’s Gate National Park is a remarkable quarter of the Great Rift Valley. Spectacular scenery including the towering cliffs, water-gouged gorges, stark rock towers, scrub clad volcanoes and belching plumes of geothermal steam make it one of the most atmospheric Parks in Africa. It is also a good place to meet giraffes, zebras or warthogs face to face while walking or biking through the park. The gorges include the Fischer’s Tower and Central Tower columns and the Hell’s Gate Gorge.
