Ngong Hills represent a set of peaks in a ridge along the Great Rift Valley overlooking the Nairobi National Park. This gazette forest reserve spanning 21,000 sq km (8,108 sq mi) makes a popular weekend destination for those wishing to hike, jog, or picnic. With the highest peak standing at 2,460 m (8,070 ft), you can get a panorama of Maasai villages from 1,000 m (3,280 ft). You may see some buffalo there, and you can watch for traditional colonial houses, as this was a popular development area during the British colonial rule.

  • An excellent experience. A great getaway from urban life. Stunning views. You however require to be fit to climb all seven hills.

Park as high up as possible. Just a tip 😉
