Hell's Gate Bicycle Safari

Has anyone done a bike trek in Hell's Gate??

I'm looking for info - I've heard it's possible but don't know any details about it... (how much, when, how long, what you see, etc)

You could try these guys in Nairobi: Bike Treks T020/2141757 or 0722/727257, http://www.biketreks.co.ke, but they haven't been very forthcoming in recent contacts and it's probably unlikely your plans and what they could offer would coincide.

However, if you just head down to Naivasha, you'll find several places either renting out mountain bikes, include Fisherman's Camp and Carnelly's (I like Carnelly's) or putting you in touch with people who can rent them. And there's at least one bike rental place right at the T junction for Hell's Gate National Park's Elsa Gate. Just discuss the rate, rent your bike, and set off. It's a beautiful area to cycle in and not too much hard work!

Hope that helps,

As #1 says easy to do and you can see all the plains animals but not eles, lion or cheetah and they say no leopard but I have see one there years ago so you never know!!

Also Lammergeier or Bearded Vulture up on the cliffs. It is huge with a wingspan of arount 9ft (3 m)

Spectacular scenery, hot springs and a geothermal plant.
