Hells Gate National Park
Debbie writes... a short drive from Lake Naivasha is Hells Gate National Park. This is the first park where you can walk or cycle without a ranger/guide. On entering through Elsa Gate, one is soon rewarded with dramatic cliffs and steep gorges - quite spectacular!

We opted for a walk down to Lower Gorge - but soon realised we needed the expertise of a guide. As if on cue, Patrick emerged from the path above and volunteered to be our guide.
