Ngong Hills represent a set of peaks in a ridge along the Great Rift Valley overlooking the Nairobi National Park.

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).

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