This is the only park I know of that let you ride a bicycle through it while you're surrounded by wild animals. Definitely a unique experience and worth it, if you're physically able to do so. There's also a nice (tough in spots) hike down...More

We needed more time, but we were so grateful for the chance to walk (you can borrow a bike there too if you like).

Very relaxing place. After our hike to Mt Longonot, visit to this place was a much needed one and indeed very relaxing. The place is well done, well maintained and clean.

We enjoyed watching the zebras, buffalos, warthogs take turns at the waterhole. The park is small so half day is good unless you plan to do the Geothermal spa. We so enjoyed the 1 hour trek thru the Gorges. We paid for a guide at...More

The hike provides you a different view of Kenya from the game drives - the hike is fun and very beautiful rock formations. The guide was not very talkative or informative and seemed very uninterested in enhancing our experience. We were hurried so plan on...More

You can rent a bicycle too for a few shillings which is a good idea, it's downhill to the gorge and someone will truck it back for you. Take the whole day to get the best out of it. Another guide will lead you through the... More
