Welcome to Hellsgate National Park

Dry, dusty and dramatic but infinitely peaceful,Hell’s Gate is that rare thing: an adventurous Kenyan park with large animals that’s safe to explore by bicycle or on foot. Large carnivores are very rare, so you can cycle to your heart’s content past grazing zebras, giraffes, impalas and buffaloes, spot rock hyraxes as they clamber up inclines and chase dust clouds as they swirl in the wind. And if the pedalling isn’t enough exercise, hike the gorge or climb Fischer’s Tower.


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.

It is characterized by diverse topography and geological scenery. It is an important home of the lammergeyer (The Bearded Vulture).

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.
