Mt. Kenya Fitness - Elephant Hill Day Hike

Elephant Hill is on the southern end of the Aberdares Ranges. It is about 90km north of Nairobi and takes 2 hours to the starting point. Elephant Hill is an ideal location for a day hike. It's one of the best pre‐hikes, mainly if one is up to hiking Africa's highest mountains, Mt Kilimanjaro and Mt Kenya. Elephant Hill Hike is approximately 9 kilometers k stretch from the starting point to the summit and back, making a total of approximately 18 kilometers. The first stop is at the starting point, followed by the bamboo gate, then there is the point of despair, the tail, and the summit, which overlooks Mt. Kinangop. Elephant Hill is situated west of Mt Kenya in the central highlands between Nyeri and Naivasha. The Aberdares ranges are the water catchment area feeding two of the largest dams supplying Nairobi's water needs, i.e., Ndakaini Dam in the Thika region and Sasumua Dam near Njabini town. As you go up, beautiful sceneries, birds, and wildlife are eye-catching, and you make unforgettable memories of these beautiful sceneries.
