What to Expect

Mt. Longonot is a stratovolcano located Southeast of Lake Naivasha. The mountain crater rim has a forest of small trees covering the crater floor. Small steam vents are found spaced around the wall of the crater. Animals found in Mt. Longonot National Park are Zebra, Giraffe, Hartebeest, among other friendly wildlife.

The whole hike is about 8–9 km long but very steep, so much so that the round trip from park gate to the Longonot Peak and back again takes appx 6hrs. The trail from the main entrance up to the crater rim is 3 km. Elevation at the gate stands 2150mts and the peak at 2780mts A.S.L.
