Kakamega Forest NR

Tour Overview

Kakamega Forest is the only tropical forest left in Kenya. The forest is home to a variety of primates, and it is one of Kenya’s birding hotspots. It marks the easternmost distribution of many sought-after West African species.

Even non-birders will appreciate the jungle atmosphere of the forest. Walking with a knowledgeable guide is the best way to explore the forest. Many creatures live in the forest, but most are small and not easy to spot. There are, however, a lot of primates. Some of the more conspicuous ones are black-and-white colobus monkey and red-tailed and blue monkey.

Nocturnal species include potto and bushbaby. Other mammals, less easy to spot, include duiker, dik-dik and scaly-tailed flying squirrels. Butterfly enthusiasts are well catered for with more than 400 species recorded.
