The Hell's gate sanctuary has no predators, so one can cycle inside. It is home to the zebra, gazelle, Eland, hartbeeste and several birds

You need to have a guide to get the best out of Hell's Gate, but it is a good half-day out. The pathways to the gorge are not for the faint-hearted and you will need good shoes, not flip-flops!

A historical destination for any tourist who wants to see geological sites especially volcanoes and craters. Would recommend this to students and young travellers willing to do bicycle riding.

There's guys well before the park that will say there are no more bikes past them, they lied. We tried their bikes, and they were in rough shape. One wouldn't change gears, my chain kept popping off, another seat wouldn't stay raised. So we turned...More
