FINAL VERDICT

Ngong Hills is a haven for nature walks, picnics, family weekend out, team building and much more. It is less than an hours drive from Nairobi and the entrance fee is pocket-friendly. This is a place I would advice people to visit and experience the magical Kenya.

It is a place the tourism sector of the government has neglected somewhat, but can make you fall in love with the country more. Get on the road!

You like it? Next time you hear there is a plan, join in!!!
