  • The best and most Unique park in the world. Hell's Gate gives natural trails for biking among wild Animals, (Zebras, Warthogs, Buffaloes and Gazelles) It has a great gorge with Hot springs and offers an option of rock climbing. My greatest thrilling was biking from the Gate to the Gorge.... No wonder many movies were done here.
  • Probably one of the most unique national parks on the world. The cliffs and the gorge are simply stunning. The walk through the gorge is an amazing experience is totally worth the time and effort. Despite the numerous number of times you do it, it never gets old. Its worth doing a quick drive around the park before you do the walk in the gorge. Some fantastic scenery.
