From Nairobi: Full-day Hiking At Mount Longonot 8 hours

  • Shared tour
  • Solo friendly

Mount Longonot Hiking is a stratovolcano located southeast of Lake Naivasha in the Great Rift Valley of Kenya, Africa. It is thought to have last erupted in the 1860's, then its name was derived from the Maasai word Oloonong'ot meaning the ‘'mountains of many spurs'' or ‘'steep ridges''. Mount Longonot is protected by the Kenya Wildlife Service as part of the Longonot National Park. Mount Longonot is located about 90km from Nairobi. The hiking safari trail starts from Longonot Park gate to the top of the crater and around the crater rim. The crater rim provides great scenic views across the beautiful Rift Valley to Lake Naivasha.

Depart Nairobi in the early in the morning and stop at the Rift Valley viewpoint to see the reason why this area is called the Great Rift Valley. View the Loita Plains and then proceed to Mount Longonot for a 5-hour hike.

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.
