6 reasons why you should go to Hell’s Gate National Park

Located in Naivasha in Kenya, Hell’s Gate National Park is home to a variety of wildlife, flora and over 100 species of birds. It was a belief that this was the outlet for the pre-historic freshwater lake that stretched from here to Nakuru. which would have supported early human communities on its shores.

The breathtaking scenery, complete with towering cliffs, gorges, rock towers, volcanoes and belching plumes of geothermal steam, make it one of the most atmospheric parks in Africa.

And here are 6 reasons why a trip to Hell’s Gate National Park should be on your bucket list:

1. At Hell’s Gate you can enjoy walking safaris, and even families with young energetic children can take part in a walk in the wild alongside zebra, eland, gazelle and giraffe.

2. And if you don’t fancy walking, hire a bike at the gate of the park and enjoy a ride in the wild.

3. Camping facilities are available within the park so it’s a wonderful place for you to pitch up tent under the dazzling Kenyan night sky.

4. On a visit to the park you can see African buffalos, zebras, elands, hartebeests, Thomson’s gazelles, baboons and over 100 bird species including vultures, Verreaux’s eagles, augur buzzards and swifts. Rare lammergeier vultures, as well as the Chandler’s mountain reedbuck and the klipspringer antelope also call the park home.

5. Amazing scenery will surround you thanks to Fischer’s Tower, the Central Tower, and the park’s gorge. Fischer’s Tower came to be as a result of volcanic activity that occurred 35 million years ago. It was later named after a German explorer named Gustav Fischer, and it is now one of the park’s many popular rock climbing sites.

Very few natural phenomena occur can compete with the annual Masai Mara/Serengeti wildebeest migration. Up to TWO MILLION wildebeest, zebra and gazelles - move clockwise around this enormous ecosystem, driven by ancient instincts to find fresh grazing and water.

It is a journey that involves lots of drama - as the migrating herds are constantly under attack from predators, especially the lions and the savage crocodiles that lie in wait at various river crossing points.
