  • Hell’s gate is not worth the time and money in my opinion (Crescent Island is much better in this regard. Lots of animals on a small patch of land, you literally walk among giraffes. Amazing...

  • Hell's Gate is always a great day out but now the gorge is closed due to a risk of flash flooding, it is useful to have a guide to show you the other nice hike and walk options if you don't want to...

  • Incredible in all ways and definitely worth the trip. Moi South Lake road was redone so it's a smooth drive. A bit pricey given the activities within the park are not catered for in the park fees. Community fees to trek along the gorge ranging from 2000 to 4000 (per group) depending on the length of the hike. Then a per person entrance fee into the geothermal spa.
  • I loved the experience, starting from the biking experience at the entrance down to the gorge and also our tour guide in the park Gadaffi was awesome at his job. Kelvin who picked me up from my apartment and took me and some other tourist to see the Hell's gate and the Lake was a very nice fellow. He was very vocal and friendly. It was a 10/10 experience for me.
