Hell’s Gate National Park

[singlepic id=120 w= h= float=center]

One of the great things about Hell’s Gate National Park in Kenya is that you can ride through the park on a bicycle, or take a guided walking tour. The other great thing is the landscape. With a guide you can descend through a beautiful gorge (see photo) to the Devil’s Bed Chamber and Bathroom, which is powered by hot springs. We went there with a bunch of friends, rented the remaining 7 semi-usable bicycles, and took off into the park that is supposed to have inspired the landscape drawn in the movie ‘Lion King.’ After about a mile we ran into the first zebras and antelopes, and a little further we saw warthogs, a giraffe, and eventually African buffalos. You can see a few more pictures from Hell’s Gate in the Africa Gallery.
