The Hell's Gate National Park tour starts and ends in Nairobi. The Hell's Gate National Park is a walking tour that takes 10 hours.

With a name like Hell's Gate, it's no wonder this park is less-visited than others in Kenya. Take the chance to visit one of the few parks you can walk in on this Nairobi tour that also includes a visit to the Elsamere Conservation Centre where you'll be tempted to sing 'Born Free'.

“This trip was an excellent one. I work myself in typical mass tourism for a big tour operator and was simply enjoying not being a number, being close to locals, enjoying rich culture and magic moments without the crowds. It was enjoyable having a guide by my side, who made this experience special, with his own love for the sight, with interesting insight information and being spontaneous to whatever was occuring in the small group. Going the extra mile in a natural way, hugely recommendable. Thank you for a magic day, excellent food and pure happiness.”

“I went on the Culture Vulture Delhi Tour in June 2015. It was a great experience, taking in many of the sights of Old Delhi that I otherwise would not have had the opportunity to see or certainly wouldn’t have gone to on my own. My guide, Konika, was excellent. She explained every detail all the places we went to; temples, streets and alleys; food stalls; spice market, travelling on the Metro. Konika was great fun to go on tour with; so personable. It was like being taken on tour by a friend. As a solo traveller, I thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would highly recommend it to others.”

“We had to cut our tour short. The offices were closed so they closed the tunnels. I enjoyed what I saw but was expecting to interact with downtown workers. Mike did very well with what he had to work with. I enjoyed his presentation and his personality.”

Hell's Gate, you say? Amazing, we say. Come explore this wicked National Park with us (pun intended) on a day tour from Nairobi that you won't soon forget.


From Nairobi we'll head north towards Lake Naivasha, stopping along the way to take in breathtaking views of the Rift Valley before proceeding towards the lake. If you've forgotten your camera, you're going to be regretting it already.


Not long after, we'll arrive at Hell's Gate National Park, a massive 70 sq km park that is one among only a few National Parks in Kenya where walking is permitted (just mind your step, eh?).


The park is full of herbivores, and there are bird-watching opportunities galore. Combine that with hot springs, spectacular cliffs, and gorges, and you'll have hours and hours worth of amazing African-ness to explore.


Try not to get too caught up, though, as your lunch is not to be missed. You'll eat at a local restaurant where you'll sample regional cuisine and engage with the locals - pretty much one of our favourite things about travelling.


With stomachs full, we'll head to the Elsamere Conservation Centre on the shores of the lake, which was once the home of Joy and George Adamson, who devoted their lives to wildlife conservation. They are famously remembered for their relationship with the lioness Elsa, having reared her from a cub and released her back into the wild.


On that heartwarming note, we'll head back to Nairobi after a full day of exploring.
