Mt. Longonot Climb – Kenya

Standing over the shores of Lake Naivasha, at 2886 metres this massive dormant volcano dominates the landscape for miles around.

The brooding hulk of the Mountain is lined with spectacular fissures and laval canyons. As you climb these slopes, you pass through herds of grazing game and spectacular views of the Rift Valley as well as Naivasha unfold below.

Its vast crater is an awesome sight, the jagged edge surrounding a broad expanse of vegetation. Geothermal steam trickles upwards from the walls, while buffalo and other game make their way across the crater floor.

 

Mt. Longonot Climb – Kenya

 

Depart Nairobi for Mt Longonot National Park, heading through the Kikuyu lush green highlands. With a stopover at the Great Rift Valley view point. The Rift Valley system was formed 5 million years ago and runs from the Red Sea through Ethiopia Kenya, and Tanzania.

You will hike around the crater and down to the Gate. The height gain during the hike is rapid and this makes for a stiff climb. Alternatively, you can also decide to circumnavigate the crater rim.

The hiking trail features some rest points, but it also includes some narrow points – especially on the crater rim. The total length of the hike up, around the crater rim, and back, is 10.3km. The hike from the Gate to the crater rim is 3.1km in length.

After the hike we drive back to Nairobi to arrive late in the afternoon.

You will be dropped at your hotel/residence or Airport.
