An idyllic location for a picnic, the Ngong Hills are located on the southwest side of Nairobi, about 45 minutes’ drive from the city centre. They’re a series of rolling hills, which from a distance look like knuckles. We usually hike a few and then stop at the top for a picnic—and the view. You’ll see monkeys in the trees and kids herding goats. Up on top of the hills it’s very exposed and windy, so bring layers. Out-of-Africa-famed Denys Finch Hatton’s grave is located on the hills. You can visit for a small fee. It’s worth taking an armed guide with you, who you can meet at the car park, in case of any wild animals or other issues.

Great to enjoy the views Nairobi and more. Only problem is a lot of nomads and their kids in the area so expect to be asked to buy items from strangers which ruins the experience for a bit.
"Ngong" means "knuckles" in Maasai, a fitting name since these beautiful pointed green hills resemble the back of a fist facing the sky. They are a popular place to visit close to Nairobi and provide a welcome respite from the city heat. The hills are the peaks of a ridge overlooking the Great Rift…
enjoy a day out at the nong hills and have a picnic while you are it. sit and you can be able to see the whole of nairobi from the top.
A great hiking trail and afternoon trip from The Maple House. Stunning views of the great Rift Valley.
A popular walking and picnicking venue for Nairobi's residents and visitors from all over the Country. The walk/ hike takes about 4 to 5 hour to complete, depending on fitness levels.

“The only national park in Kenya where you can photograph large mammals like the elephant, lion or buffalo with a backdrop of Mt. Kilimanjaro. It's a stunning park where the animals congregate even in dry season due to the swamps fed by the snow melt off Kilimanjaro. ”
