Lovely hike to Sibebe Rock. We drove partway as we have young kids, but we still had a solid three hour round trip hike to the top. Some great caves and climbing / scrambling spots, plus some unbelievable views.

Worth the hike to the top if you have time. I went with a guide who was able to give me all the info I needed. Stunning views from the top.

The hike up to the hill is not that difficult. I feel like I had to go just for the fact that's the second biggest rock in the world.
