It was a nice experience climbing the hills.The windmills provided cool breeze as we ascended up with our team.While at the peaks you can sport the surrounding villages and a far view of Nairobi city.The most interesting thing is that you get siked up to hike from hill to hill due to the fulfillment of conquering them all.

From high up above you see the vastness of the country and the beauty of it. If you are keen you will even get a snick peak at Nairobi which looks so tiny, you'll have a hard time locating it. The last I was here I remember wondering how my ancestors managed all the long walks they did while I... More

A scenic hike and great for nature lovers seeing as it's so close to the city. However, one gets the overall feeling that KFS doesn't put any effort in making the place any better(security and litter-wise) which is a bit disappointing since they charge you to hike through anyway. It's sad that all these years since the first cases of... More

We drove up to the ngong hills around 9am and lucky for us the weather was in our favour as by the time we begun the trek it was 11 am. We parked at the D.O office (although you can drive up as far as the guard office or radar point then begin from there) and begun walking, this adds... More

We hiked with our young kids this afternoon in the Ngong Hills. We did not do all of them - just spent about 2 hours walking up into them and enjoying the gorgeous views and fresh air. We hiked from the southern end "Corner Baridi" and there was no government fee, no windmills, and no satellite dishes. Our guide was... More

Had a great hike this past Saturday at Ngong Hills. Went with 4 of my friends and we hired 1 armed guard for 2000 KES. We couldn't find reliable admission prices information online so I'm attaching a picture of the prices that are posted at the KWS office. Citizens - 200 KES Residents - 400 KES Non-Residents - 600 KES... More

Ngong hills is one of the mountain that separate the Ngong village from the 'Masai Land'. I was doing a volunteering for a month in the Olasity community and I was living with the Masai people, which happened to be the most friendly and happy people I met n my life! In order to get our supplies we had to... More

Today I visited the grave of Denys Finch Hatton (24 April 1887 – 14 May 1931). He was an aristocratic big-game hunter. He was the lover of Baroness Karen Blixen who wrote the book “Out of Africa” (in 1985 this book was turned into a film with Robert Redford in the role of Hatton). His plane crashed and in accordance... More

If you like hiking and have a basic level of fitness this is worth a visit. Lots if ups and downs to ascend and descend if the weather is clear, good views to Nairobi City and up the Rift Valley. A change from Mount Longonot.
