Facts about Ngong Hills Nairobi!

The hike up Ngong Hills

The hike up Ngong Hills starts from Ngong town at the northern foot of the hills 1961m above sea level, and traverses the whole range to the southern end at Kona Baridi.

This takes about 4 to 5 hour to complete, depending on fitness levels.

The first kilometer from Ngong Police Station is a gradual ascent through human settlements until you get to a barrier indicating the start of the Ngong Hills forest reserve.

From here on, you go past a wind farm, before climbing the first steep hill leading to an area populated with Radio repeater station masts.

The trail thins out and descents into a trough before you climb the next steep hill.

Just when you think the worst is over, the rolling hills seem to keep popping up, with each taking its toll on you. Thankfully, the views all round are magnificent, making the effort worthwhile.

On a lucky day, you are likely to encounter buffalos around the fourth hill, on account of the abundant bushes at these higher altitudes on the range
