Situated on the floor of the Great Rift Valley, is the extinct volcano of Mount Longonot located about 90km from Nairobi. A unique feature is the thick forest that lies within the crater of the mountain. The crater rim provides great scenic views across the beautiful Rift Valley all the way to Lake Naivasha.
The hike starts from the gate and banks South towards the crater. The first section is a steep staircase trail to the Rim of the crater.
Descend into the crater and explore the floor rich with oats own biodiversity of flora and fauna. Exit the crater on the steep path and go round the crater before descending back to base.
