Hike Summary

Ngong hills forest is located in the northern tip of Kajiado County and it’s about 25km from Nairobi city with its peak standing at 8070 ft above sea level.
Our climb will start at the Ngong Police Station. The first section is a gradual ascent through a graded road that passes by the huge wind turbines definitely a sight to behold. Along the way, you also pass by the Air Traffic control masts that guide planes on the final approach to JKIA.
The Trail then descends via thick bushes and soon a series of hills suffice and keep popping up one after another. The trail traverses the whole range to Kona Baridi with amazing views of Ngong Town & Nairobi City to the Left and the Right rewards you with the wide vast lands of Kajiado county. The trail ends at Kona Baridi, definitely a place of great wind.
