Elephant Hill on the southern end of the Aberdare’s Ranges, is about 90km north of Nairobi, and perfect for a day hike. The Aberdare’s are the water catchment area feeding two of the largest dams supplying over 95% of Nairobi’s water needs, i.e. Ndakaini Dam in the Thika region and Sasumua Dam near Njabini town Attractions

  • Mountain vegetation i.e forest plantations , bamboo forest ,alpine and moorland ,summit desert .
  • Best views of Great rift valley ,..lake Naivasha, Longonot Ndakaini dam ,sasumua dam ,etc
  • Wildlife expect to see…elephants/tracks. antelopes, Columbus monkeys etc etc
  • Bird watching …over 250 species birds.

We approach the hill from Njabini Forest Station (former Kinangop South Forest Station), about 4km from Njabini shopping center. The hike up the hill takes 4 to 5 hours after starting at an altitude of 2500m at the Forest Station.

The first part of the hike is basically through farms used to grow trees and crops. The chlorophyll shadows of the exotic giant grass of the bamboo forest form the next part as the gradient gets steeper. The hike follows an elephant migration route all the way to Point of Despair. The hike then goes up the Elephants Tail before the final walk to the summit at 3650m asl . Return to base on the same route.

This hike is rated difficult and requires you to have full proper gear plus rain gear because the weather at this altitude can change drastically.

The hike is highly recommended if you are attempting Mt. Kenya
