Fighting traffic on Ngong Road to the village of Ngong was a bit discouraging to start, but a good driver and perseverance got us to the top where the view was worth the hassles. Must go through Ngong Ranger Station and pay a fee (about $10) plus take an armed forest ranger (tip at end of journey) along to top. Ngong means "knuckles" in Maasai as the hills, from Nairobi, look like your knuckles when making a fist. We were able to drive to top and park. Walked to edge of Rift Valley for a spectacular view of green vistas, grazing cattle and giant wind turbines. Chatted with some Kenyans on top, got one western dressed teenager who was herding cattle to pose as typical Maasai with one leg up and stick behind his head held by hands. Saw some traditionally dressed older Maasai upon return through Ngong Village. Worth the effort!
