Chepkitale Forest

Chepkitale Forest 1

Unique to the Chepkitale Forest are its inhabitants, the Ogiek – a hunter and gatherer tribe who have subsisted inside it for decades.  Despite many lost attempts by both the national and local Government bureaus to evict the Ogiek from the Chepkitale Forest, they continue to thrive here in what they strongly regard as their ancestral land. The Ogiek Community have since developed customary rights to manage the forest ecosystem and, by the same token, developed ways of life and traditional mastery of the forest.
