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.

Ngong Hills Reviews
An excellent experience. A great getaway from urban life. Stunning views. You however require to be fit to climb all seven hills. You don't have to by the way and most people stop at the 2nd or third peaks which is manageable. For best experience, drive past the gate all the way to where the wind turbines end. Park as high up as possible. Just a tip 😉
the place is so fantastic.There is cool climate, and free circulation of atmospheric air. Actually is agood place to go for hike with your friends
