Ngong hills is 30mins from city and has fabulous views of rift valley. Great place to find some peace and tranquility. Picnics recommended, could get windy. Recommend the right side with rift valley view. Great for climbers too.

Amazing view, cool breeze, not far from the city, entry about 300 for citizens 600. Carry jackets as the place is windy and cold, carry food and drinks as there are no descent restaurants there.
