Get an opportunity to hike in one of Kenya's beautiful mountains "Mount Longonot". The view is incredible as you get to view wild animals while hiking, Zebras, and lots of antelope species.


  • Hiking from Nairobi
  • Longonot crater
  • Lake Naivasha hiking


Mount Longonot is protected by the Kenya Wildlife Service as part of Mount Longonot National Park. A 3.1 km trail runs from the park entrance up to the crater rim and continues in a 7.2 km loop encircling the crater. The whole tour (gate-around the rim-gate) of 13.5 km takes about 4–5 hours allowing for necessary rest breaks - parts of the trail are heavily eroded and very steep. The gate elevation is around 2150 m and the peak at 2776 m but following the jagged rim involves substantially more than the 630 m vertical difference. A forest of small trees covers the crater floor, and small steam vents are found spaced around the walls of the crater. The mountain is home to various species of wildlife, notably plains zebra, giraffe, Thomson's gazelle, buffaloes, and hartebeest.
