Hell’s Gate

Not far from Lake Naivasha is another national park called Hell's Gate, where we spent a morning hiking. It's the site of an old volcano, so there are a lot of volcanic rocks and formations, and there are also natural hot springs that run through it underground.

It took us 6 days and a lot of grit and determination, but we got to meet some amazing people, and it was an incredible experience for us (although probably not one we'll soon repeat 😂). We flew from London... Continue Reading →
