Private Hiking Day Trip to Mt. Longonot from Nairobi
From US$104.00
Overview
Climb Mt. Longonot and see Lake Navaisha on a private hiking and wildlife tour from Nairobi into the magnificent Great Rift Valley. Enjoying the personal service and flexibility of a private guide, you can set your own pace as you climb the volcano, walk around the crater rim, and then explore Lake Navaisha, with the option to book a wildlife cruise on the Rift Valley’s highest lake.
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel for the scenic trip to Mount Longonot National Park. You’ll pass through the Kikuyu highlands and stop for views of the eastern escarpment of the Great Rift Valley. 

In Mount Longonot National Park, set out on the 4-mile (6.4-kilometer), round-trip hike to the edge of the crater, with the option to extend the hike an additional 1.5 miles (2.4 kilometers), walking all the way around the crater rim.

After leaving the mountain, take a break at Mount Longonot National Park headquarters, before heading to Lake Navaisha, where you can purchase lunch at the lakeside Marina Camp. You can also book a sightseeing boat ride on Lake Navaisha, where hundreds of bird species thrive alongside a population of hippos. Following your time at Lake Navaisha, this tour concludes with return transfer to your Nairobi hotel.

Amazing Hike! Awesome Experience!

This is one of my favorite hikes that I've ever done. The views are incredible, and the terrain is challenging without being impossibly hard. The mountain is about 1.5-2 hours from Nairobi, but even some of the views of the Great Rift Valley while driving...More

I loved this trip. If you are looking for a gilded safari where you follow lions around in a Land Rover Defender, look elsewhere. This day trip takes you to places where most the other visitors will be locals rather than tourists, and in the...More
