Kakamega Forest


... is the last significantly sized area of the indigenous equatorial forest in Southwest Kenya.

At 238 square kilometres, this is a relatively small reserve, only half of which currently remains as indigenous forest.

It can be an interesting place to explore, the atmospheric forest containing an amazing array of bird-life in particular, plus seven different primate species including the exceedingly rare De Brazza's monkey.

Kakamega is not somewhere we are asked to include in trips very often, it being of peripheral interest and rather removed from the country's main attractions. Only those people who are heading west on the overland route to Uganda tend to consider stopping off here.

We believe the most interesting accommodation to be the rather quirky Rondo Retreat, but to be honest, we have not yet managed to get out there to take a look.
