Fantastic views of the Great Rift Valley on one side and Nairobi City on the other. It's a great place for hiking, family picnics and also a photographer's heaven due to the spectacular views of Nairobi, Olduvai Ridge among other beautiful scenery. Mt Longonot & Mt Suswa can also be seen with the help of binoculars.

The best time to go hiking would be early morning, it can however get quiet cold and windy.It has amazing views, carry food and water as there are no places to buy anything of the sort.

Ngong Hills are remembered from the movie "Out of Africa". This Maasai land offers an amazing view of the whole land from a privileged height. I went there with friends and locals in a car. Near Ngong Hills there is Kajiado, a maasai village.

I went to Ngong hills for the first time with my girl friends on a Saturday morning, by the time we started walking it was about 9.30am. We went to Ngong police station to get guards but they could not get a hold of anyone so we went straight to the hills. I would advise you no to go to... More

Fabulous views, great walk - bring appropriate shoes and allow time (at least half day). A must to visit if in Nairobi. Camera essential. To complete all hills, high level of fitness required but 1-3 hills OK for average fitness walking. Want a challenge - run! ;)

Everyone can climd to their limits and enjoy the fresh crisp air, get a great work out and enjoy the outdoors at the same time. the best part about it is, its less than an hours drive from the city centre. one must go with their picnic baskets...

I have been up here more times than I can count but every experience is worth the long climb up. The views and breeze from the top are to die for so dont leave your camera behind. Carry enough water and some snacks to keep your energy levels in check. Dress comfortably preferably shorts and good sport shoes for the... More
