Adventure Safari

Trekking- Mt Longonot (2100m) is an enjoyable way to spend a day. The views from the top across to Naivasha and the Aberdares are sensational, and the views of the crater within the mountain even more breathtaking.

The climb up is relatively easy if you take it slowly, and the average climber can reach the top in an hour and a half, following a well defined path. Take plenty of water with you. There are rest stops with tables on the way.

Once at the top, a further hour can be spent walking around the crater rim, with excellent views the entire way.

There is also a steep path down to the crater floor.

Ranger guides are available at the Park Gate. Longonot is an easy day’s trek, but for the adventurous, the crater presents interesting possibilities for abseiling.

Abseillers would need their own equipment and the assistance of a locally skilled guide.

There is a climbing guide based in nearby Hell’s Gate National Park. See the Naivasha section for details.
