Hiking through the park and spotting its wildlife is incredibly rewarding and relatively leisurely. Allow a full day and take plenty of supplies.


Cycling is our favourite way to explore the park, and the main Hell’s Gate Gorge is relatively flat; the distance from Elsa Gate to the Lower Gorge is around 7km. Bicycles are available at the park gates for KSh500 per day, or you can pay the KSh215 fee for bringing your own into the park.


The sheer rock walls of Hell’s Gate are made for climbing and, thankfully, the park has two resident safety-conscious climbing guides (KSh500 per person per hour).

Walking Safaris

You can arrange a guided walking tour of the park with a ranger for KSh1500 per person per day.
