it's a bumpy ride, but worth the view and close to Nairobi. I especially liked visiting the locals, they are very friendly

“Devils Fist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

It is said that the devil tried to force his fist up out of the ground in rage, if you look at the range of mountains it looks just like a fist,
we had a trip to the top of the mountains late after noon in time to see a magnificent view over the rift valley & then to see the beautiful sun set wow

“Picnic in the Ngong HIlls”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

There is vast, sparse, rugged wilderness here. You will need a 4 wheel drive vehicle to traverse the area. The town of Ngong is full of quaint sights also.
