The Rift Valley is awesome - the sheer size is hard to imagine as it runs through many countries. the views coming down the winding road from the Ngong hills is fantastic so don't miss it!

This hotel is not listed on Trip Advisor and really should be a separate item. It is based near the Ngong Hills, Nairobi - please do not stay there. As leader of a large group of volunteer charity workers in Kibera slum, I feel dreadful that the team were subjected to the dreadful conditions at the hotel. We were not previously informed about the major renovations going on at the hotel - a third floor being built while gusts were staying there. We had lumps of concrete falling on the gound, drills etc going from 7.30am until 5.30pm daily apart from Sundays, huge holes dug under our balconies for the foundations etc. Our walls vibrated with the drills all day. The manager is one of the most unpleasant people I have ever met and was rude and threatening to us and did not offer us any compensation. Absolutely dreadful experience!!!!

16 Charity workers were booked into the Ngong Hills Hotel as it was near to the Kibera slums where we were working. When we got there we found that there was building work being carried out. From very early in the morning till early evening there was constant noise with a generator being switched on immediately, pneumatic drills and everything else that constituted "building work". There were too many of us to move elsewhere so we had to stay. A couple of our
group were unwell but couldn't get any peace for the days they
were ill. The management insisted we pay the full cost and even
phoned for the police to make sure we didn't leave the hotel without
paying. We were so pleased to see the back of this hotel.

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

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
