Mt Suswa Hike — Crater & Caves Excursion

Mt. Suswa is an underrated gem on the Rift Valley floor. The double-crater shield-volcano promises an unmatched hiking experience and over-delivers on breathtaking views. This November, we dive into the enchantment of the Mt Suswa hike. We will not only conquer ourselves by going halfway around the massive crater but also explore the caves and Baboons’ Parliament.


Our hike starts at the road head on the edge of the inner crater. Here, we will enjoy breathtaking views across the 5km-wide crater. We shall then proceed to the caves, before returning to the road head. Next, our hike around the crater will take us to the summit, rising to an elevation of 2,356m above sea level. Once we conquer ourselves at the summit, we shall return to the road head to board our transfer vehicles back to Nairobi.
