Such incredible beauty. Going through the Rift valley is so exciting. The one thing that spoils it a lot,are the stall traders at the viewpoint. they pounce from all directions as soon as you gey out of the car. And they just pester and pester. no time to allow you to enjoy the scenery and listen to the sounds of... More

Am not really big on this kinda things, hiking that is. So this was an experience for me. The view from the top is great. Didn't get to finish all the 7 hills though. I did 4 and couldn't take it any more. But I guess am more prepared now , can't wait to go back. Great view.

This is where the Kenyan Broadcasting satellite is set. It is one of the best view points in Kenya. It is a good place for visiting.

I believe that good travelers make locations fantastic. Then why not have an hike up on Ngong Hills?. That is if you are just feeling lazy and do not intend to hike up the entire route. A drive up to the site with communication masts and 15 minute hike up could land you to a superb picnicking spot. get a... More

Awesome views. Vendors are at the best places to stop. Be prepared to purchase something or just say no. hapanna in Swahili.

The Ngong Hills hike consists of seven hills that visitors traverse over the course of about fours. We paid for our guides (1500/ each) at the police station, then drove our vehicle up the first two hills to a secure parking area that is fenced. We paid the entrance fee (400/ for residents) at the first hill. It was insisted... More

This could be an ideal day hike and may once have been just that, but recent security concerns and the subsequent handling of them made it an unpleasant experience for our small group. An escorted armed guard service is offered by the parks authorities at a cost of Ksh 2,500 but is not obligatory. However, the guards will do their... More
