Situated about 65km from Nairobi, the Olorgesailie pre-historic site got its name from the nearby 1,760m high Mount Olorgesailie. Its proximity to Nairobi makes it an ideal location for a day hike up the mountain. The hike takes 3 hours through dry, rocky country with scattered dryland thorny bushes providing the only cover from the hot sun.
The Ol Donyo Orok, also known as Namanga Hill soars to an elevation of 2,548m above sea level. Clear mountain river waters, boulders sculptured by centuries of water erosion, and caves carved into the river and mountain sides provide a most rewarding outdoor experience for hiking enthusiasts.
