A location worth of the movies
Interesting fact, this is the park where the timeless movie Lion King was filmed. Also The Tomb Raider was filmed in Hells Gate. This tells you about its popularity both for local and international tourists. It is popular for its wildlife, its huge cliffs and its gorges. When visiting, options are plenty. It is located in Kiambu county 134km from Nairobi CBD. You can choose to go for a game drive for a cost of 1800/= per cruiser, or picnics at 250/= per head or cycling which costs 1000/= per bike but if you bring your own bike, you’ll only pay 200/=. While cycling around the park you can pass by the zebras and giraffes. I remember my visit there on a class trip, we visited one of the water-gouged gorges and we got to swim in one. This is strictly under supervision when the water levels are low. I really enjoyed that particular experience. Although there is not much wildlife, you can take part in hiking, camping and canyon walking. There some places where the canyon is 30 meters high. The view there is mind blowing. But you have to be careful and always be accompanied by a guide. Its a remarkable and memorable place to visit.
