After reading the reviews from other posters, we were a bit hesitant to do the Longonot hike, especially with the price. Let me tell you, this hike is worth every penny. Getting to the top of the rim and looking down to the crater, is...More

Staying on lake Naivasha for a week I decided to hike Mt Longonot. The ascent is steep but quick. The trail around the rim is exhausting and takes longer than you may expect. The trail was quite eroded and on some points you needed to...More

Firstly, make sure you access the site via old naivasha Road (there are some misleading signs on the road around lake naivasha). Pack plenty of water and grippy shoes - this is a tough gradient in parts. All of it is worth the effort though,...More

I hiked up Mt Longonot one morning in early July '17. We left Nairobi very early (around 6.45) so that I could start the hike before it got too hot. I started the hike around 8.30 and got to the top in about 70 -...More
