Any trip to Hell's Gate must include a visit to the Thermal Springs. Remember to take your swimming costume and a towel and prepare to spend a good couple of hours here.

A beautiful corner of Kenya. There is wildlife - giraffes, zebras, warthogs, etc everywhere. However, you need a very good and highly knowledge guide. Was there on 23 March 2018 as part of an excusion of training workshop participants. This was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity which...More

First off, hiring a guide is a must. For 1500 ksh, it is well worth it. Your guide will be able to customize your experience according to the time you have and your skill level. Note that some parts of the hike require a minimum...More

You have to be reasonably fit. The guides will assist those less athletic. The thermal pools are not that exciting, but the gorge walk is well worth it.
