William Hill

Standing at approx. 2300m ASL William hill summit offers a good vantage point for a breathtaking panoramic view of the Great Rift Valley. The hill is part of the greater Kikuyu escarpment. From the floor of the rift valley for about 10km to the hike, you get to see Osotua camp and Namcha ranch. As you ascend the hill, you get to learn the history of the area where over 100 people were killed in what is known as Kedong massacre. You will also see the Olonana boundary among other features.
