One of the must-see safari parks in Kenya is Hell’s Gate. The geothermal activity sends plumes of steam skyward. The park boasts cliffs, gorges, rock towers, volcanoes and a natural spa.

It’s the place to go if you want tons of biodiversity. The park also contains animals like zebras, elephants, pythons, cobras and buffalos.
