It is impossible to exhaust Hell’s Gate. There’s just too much. You know, that place that is dynamic in every way possible. Hell’s Gate is found in the environs of Lake Naivasha, and is home to around 100 species of birds, flora, and a variety of wildlife. We dwelt a little bit on the wildlife, birds, and all that. It is not possible to fully cover all there is in the park especially given I’m nothing close to a biologist. I hate misleading. I haven’t yet found the need to know each bird by their name. Things change, I know.
In the meantime, let’s jump right in!
The most interesting part of the Hell’s Gate tour was the gorges. The water-gouged gorges take the average person around 1-2 hours to cover. This could vary considerably based on your interests and all. It took me 3.
BTW, it’s called Hell’s Gate because of the extreme geothermal activity that takes places within its borders.
Needless to say, this is an ideal venue for a day trip from Naivasha and Nairobi.
The walk was fulfilling. Take snacks with you, they’ll come in handy especially if you’re a foodie. Don’t litter. Watch out for flash floods – though I kinda wish I’d see them from a distance. Wear nice shoes. Be good company. Be adventurous!
