A towering, geological landmark in Kenya's Great Rift Valley, Mount Longonot is a stratovolcano located south-east of Lake Naivasha. Its last eruption is thought to have taken place in the 1860s, and it's now an awe-inspiring monolith rising up from the floor of the valley. One of its eye-catching attributes is a dense forest which lies nestled within the crater of the mountain. The rugged rim of the crater also boasts sweeping, panoramic views across the sumptuous Rift Valley all the way to Lake Naivasha. Wildlife lovers will be in their element here, with plenty of local animals to spy during a visit – they range from buffaloes and lions to zebras and giraffes.
