An unexpected thunderstorm in the groundwater area of Hell's Gate National Park in Naivasha is seriously endangering the lives and lives of five tourists and a guide who were reported missing yesterday afternoon after being swept away by the sudden floods while on safari inside the park. According to some testimonies, they are at least partly Asian hikers.
Rift Valley Regional Police Chief Marcus Ochola confirmed to the media that police and Kenyan Wildlife Service rangers intervened after 4 p.m. to search for the group of six.
"Our main problem is that darkness has come and it will be difficult to conduct operations, but we are doing our best," said the chief of police, assisted in the search operations by law enforcement officers of the counties of Nakuru and Nyandarua.
The Rift Valley was going through a period of rainfall related to the drought limit, which is occurring in the north of the country.
The Hell's Gate National Park is located south of the Naivasha Lake basin, fed by tributaries and aquifers that still feed it, floods when it rains abundantly fill even the karst gorges that give the name "gate of hell" to the area.
The last such incident due to the flooding, inside the park, occurred in 2012. Seven people were killed at that time.
