The lake was designated a Ramsar site (wetland of international importance) in 2005. It was gazetted as a National Wildlife Sanctuary in 2010 and listed together with Lakes Nakuru and Bogoria as the Kenya Lakes System in the Great Rift Valley World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2011.

Hell’s Gate is an ideal venue for a day trip from Nairobi where, in addition to the bio-diversity that includes raptors, visitors can enjoy mountain biking, rock climbing and a natural spa.

A lake view is quite unparallel - besides all the inhabitants, among them strikingly magnificent hippos, you will see shores of blooming flowers and the peaks of the Great rift. High above there is the Njorowa Gorge, which was once the lake's outlet - an ever-standing reminder of nature’s changes - especially those, caused by humans. The blooming backdrop has a downside - uncontrolled irrigation causes devastating changes to the lake’s ecosystem.

The hike from the gate to the crater rim is 3.1km in length but the height gain is rapid and this makes for a stiff climb. One can also decide to circumnavigate the crater rim which is a distance of 7.2km. The hiking trail is provided with some rest points but it is narrow, especially on the crater rim. The total length of the hike up, around the crater rim, and back is 10.3km through some narrow paths and treacherously steep inclines. After hike we will drive back to Nairobi....End of Safari
