The Ngong hills offer the closest hike from Nairobi city center. You get very good views of Nairobi city, the Rift valley and pass by the Ngong with farm and telecom masts. 100% worth your day!

Great place to hike, but I would not walk alone. I would also recommend a guide for security. Lovely views and the trail is clearly marked.

The hill walk was very nice. Not too strenuous - comparable to an easy hike in the Peak District in Britain. Trainers were fine - hiking boots not necessary. There are several minor peaks and it seems that the most common walk is to the...More
