floor of the world-famous Great Rift Valley. Mount Longonot is a dormant
volcano that last erupted in the 1800s. Located just 90km from Nairobi, it is
the perfect location for an adventurous day trip out of the Kenyan capital.
Requiring a modest level of
physical fitness, the 4-5 hour hike takes you to the very rim of the volcano
crater for a glimpse out across the Great Rift Valley. The early portion of
your hike takes you through land inhabited by wildlife such as buffalo,
antelope, and even leopards, while the higher reaches are steep and require a good level of determination.
