Usually foggy before 10am which is best time to visit when temps are cool. Incredible views beyond escarpment!

As far as the eye can see a vastness like no other place. Do a land package where you have the experience of an all train vehicle to see the real rift valley as opposed to a fly over. The primitive roads are an experience...More

Around 1k (1000 KES ~ $10). Whereby I've personally never used a guide to hike those hills. Won't see a reason. Unless someone feels insecure and threatened by the open and I fenced environment. ;) But seriously - big game... More
