Hell’s Gate is famous for its natural hot geysers, its eagle and vulture breeding grounds, and the variety of activities that visitors have access to during their visit. Hiking, cycling, and rock climbing are just a few of the options available to visitors.
While Hell’s Gate is known primarily for its landscape, there is still game to be spotted within the park. Buffalo, giraffes, elands, lions, leopards, and cheetahs can all be spotted in the park on occasion

Upon arrival at Hell’s Gate National Park, you’ll take your picnic lunch and decide how you wish to spend your day. You can hike the canyons and mountains, rent bikes and enjoy a leisurely cycle, go horse riding, or take a more traditional game drive. Rock climbing and abseiling are also available.
