On the eve of our hike it rained heavily around Nairobi. It was therefore not surprising to find that Ngong was really muddy, cold and with poor visibility. At the start, the visibility was so poor that one could not see more than a 100 metres ahead. It only started clearing after the fifth climb. By the time we reached... More

Great place to go hiking! Vies are superb though it is windy. Go prepared as facilities are limited.

I recommend you do this on a cool day or start early in the morning. If you want to wall all the 7 hills i would propose you begin from "corner baridii" and end up at Ngong Town. Get someone to drop you off and pick you up, also organize with the rangers so you have a guide with you... More

Good for getting out of the city, and a place where walking in the open air on the hilltops is a pleasure. Ngong hills have that air of romance, even with the windmills! The view towards the Rift Valley in one direction, and back across the city of Nairobi in the other has a grandeur about it. Not necessarily obvious... More

Ngong Hills is really beautiful and easy to access from Nairobi. The entry was 600 KES for tourists and 200 for nationals. We're told it is not safe to walk all seven hills alone as theft/mugging has increased on the route. We walked four on our own and had no issue as there were plenty of people around. You can... More

The views over the rift valley from top of Ngong hills are spectacular and has always be great place to escape for a picnic at the weekend. Recent trip after about a year was a surprise as the number of wind turbines has increased to around 20+ with construction still underway. Trip advisor is probably not the place for debates... More

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
