A Walk on the Wild Side
Also known as Njorowa Gorge, Hell’s Gate National park covers an area of 68 sq kilometers and is considered to have one of the most spectacular and exciting walks in Kenya – leading through a gorge lined with sheer, red cliffs. There are hot springs and geysers that bubble up from the earth’s surface, testimony to the still active volcano in the region. Mt. Longonot, a young volcano, dominates the landscape rising a thousand metres above Lake Level. There are many birds of prey and swifts in the area. The most interesting bird to observe here is the nearly extinct Lammergeyer Vulture, reintroduced here to save it from extinction.
