Mount Longonot

Longonot Crater

Standing over the shores of Lake Naivasha, at 2886 metres, is Mount Longonot, a massive dormant volcano which dominates the landscape for miles around.

The brooding hulk of the mountain is lined with spectacular fissures and laval canyons. As you climb these slopes, you pass through herds of grazing game as spectacular views of the Rift Valley and Naivasha unfold below.

Its vast crater is an awesome sight, the jagged edge surrounding a broad expanse of vegetation. Geothermal steam trickles upwards from the walls, while buffalo and other game make their way across the crater floor.
