Ngong Hills Forest Sanctuary

The Ngong Hills Forest Sanctuary is a ten minute bumpy ride from Ngong town and it is worth the bumpy ride once you reach there. The Ngong Hills provide quite a view once you ignore the massive wind vanes all over the place (although in some way they have made the place look uniquely good).…
