Hike Summary

Olkaria Hill is found on the western side of Hells Gate National park and rises to a dramatic 2434m above sea level. The hill is in a geothermal-rich zone with natural steam coming off the ground in a few places, a perfect place for natural steam and a sauna.
The hike takes you first to the fumaroles with hot steam from the ground coming naturally before attempting the hike to the hill. The trail is unbeaten and you should be well prepared with comfortable hiking bookings and long pants. The hike up is rewarding with sweeping views of the park below and the steaming power plants of Olkaria on the horizon. From the summit, the views of Lake Naivasha, Oloiden, and as far as the Suswa plains are breathtaking. After the descent, we head to the Geothermal Olkaria spa pool for a relaxing swim and lunch before heading back to Nairobi.
