Hike the knuckle-like Ngong Hills
For a spectacular hike near Nairobi, head to the Ngong Hills, about 40 minutes out of town. These knuckle-shaped mountains offer panoramic views of Nairobi and the surrounding mountain ranges, and you can choose to turn back at any point if you don’t feel like scaling every peak (the highest sits at 2460m above sea level). The easiest option is to drive to the start point from Ngong Town, where you can leave your car and pick up a ranger to guide your walk. Be sure to take a picnic with you – it doesn’t get much better than eating lunch sitting atop of one of these peaks staring at Kenya sprawling out below you.
