Hike rugged volcanic landscapes, cycle alongside zebras and giraffes, and rock climb towering cliffs. This is Kenya at its most raw and thrilling - an adventure playground unlike any other.


  • Forget safari vans. This is hiking, biking, & raw Kenyan adventure
  • My guides know Hell's Gate inside-out; we find the hidden magic others miss
  • No hotel beats bonfires and hippos calling under a sky full of stars
  • The thrill of hiking through a volcanic gorge, steam swirling around you
  • The rush of wind in your hair as you cycle alongside zebras and gazelles


The Early Start: We'll kick off our Hell's Gate adventure bright and early. If you've chosen the optional pickup, I'll be swinging by your Nairobi spot around 7:00 am. For those meeting us at the park, we'll rendezvous at Elsa Gate a little later. Road Trip Vibes: As we leave the bustle of Nairobi behind, get those playlists ready and soak in the changing scenery. The drive to Hell's Gate is an experience in itself, with stunning views of the Great Rift Valley unfolding. Entering the Wild: Arrival at Elsa Gate marks the official start of our adventure. Get prepped – hiking boots on, water bottles filled, and a sense of excitement buzzing around us! Those renting bikes, we'll get you all sorted. Gorge Exploration: We're diving straight into the heart of Hell's Gate with a hike through the Ol Njorowa Gorge. Get ready for towering cliffs, steam vents, and the raw beauty of volcanic landscapes. Keep your eyes open for zebra herds, playful gazelles, or some of the park's other iconic residents. Cycling Adventure: Time to switch gears! We'll hop on those bikes and feel the thrill of cycling across the plains. Imagine the wind in your hair and the vast Kenyan wilderness stretching out before you. This is freedom, folks! Climbing Challenge (Optional): For the adrenaline junkies among us, Fischer's Tower awaits. With safety gear and a whole lot of determination, we'll conquer this iconic rock formation. The view from the top? Trust me, it's worth every bit of effort. Fisherman's Campsite Paradise: As the sun dips below the horizon, we'll make our way to Fisherman's Campsite. Tents up, campfire crackling – this is classic African wilderness at its best. Keep your ears open for the grunts of hippos as they graze around the nearby lake. Bonfire Tales and Stargazing: Huddled around the fire, we'll share stories under a sky ablaze with stars. Away from city lights, the Milky Way stretches out like a diamond-studded blanket. This is wild Kenya at its most magical. Remember, this is just a blueprint! We'll personalize the adventure with plenty of photography breaks, wildlife encounters, and moments of pure awe along the way. So, let's get out there and make memories that will last a lifetime!
