Hell's Gate National Park reviews
As many previous reviews say, it is truly amazing to cycle among giraffes, zebras, buffalos and other animals... And if this is not enough, you can also descend to the gorge that served as filming...

Take a game drive and enjoy pristine Flora and fauna. You can also hire a bike and ride through the park. Visit the gorges and enjoy beautiful strata of rocks. You won't get bored no matter how many times you visit. Rock climbing sport is gaining traction here so you can also give a try. The charges are insignificant to what you will enjoy. You will easily spot zebras, Impalas, Gazelles, warthogs, giraffes and many other wild animals
Its a nice historic place to visit. Please note that there is nothing much to do here unless someone is willing to do biking. Its a long stretch with country side roads (very rough). AT the end one reaches a small warm water spring that is just to look at (no swimming or bath possible). Going down on the bike is easy but coming back was tiring for us. Recommend to carry some seat pads or have a cycling short to have a better ride experience. Also, we could see Giraffe and Zebra's roaming around very close. Its a nice experience. Remember to book the bikes in advance if possible especially with kids. Else, get it from the main road where one enters for the park as bike renting is available at the turning of road (at the entrance. the park only sells entry ticket and no bike renting). One can also do short rock climbing inside the park at extra cost. Carry sufficient water if biking. No food is available inside the park. It takes 3-4 hours to cover the park with bike. Enjoy...
