Ngong Hills Hiking/ Walking Day Tour of Nairobi makes it a very popular weekend walking/ Hiking destination as an African Spice Safaris Tour. Ngong Hills (7 Hills) are a popular day-trip safari destination for guests including school groups, hikers, picnickers, professional, amateur runners and worshippers. The hills can become quite busy over the weekends!
Professional and amateur runners will also be found in the morning jogging up and down the steep slopes. The highest peak on the knuckle-shaped Ngong hills is at 2460 meters/ 8070 Feet above sea level, and the whole mountain range is a gazetted forest reserve covering an area of over 21,000 square Kilometers.
The Ngong Hills featured in the film ‘Out of Africa’, which was based on the book of the same name by Karen Blixen. Karen Blixen suggested the name “Ngong” came from the Maasai word for “knuckles” and indeed the row of hills do look like a set of knuckles.
The Ngong Hills are where Denys Finch Hatton, Karen Blixen’s lover, is buried and your guide should be able to point to the exact location. The hills were a favorite place for Blixen and Finch Hatton to go hunting, especially for lions.
The lions are gone now though, so it is safe to walk and enjoy the same beautiful scenery the couple enjoyed 100 years ago.
