Kakamega Forest National Reserve

  • The only tract of equatorial rainforest in Kenya

Kakamega Forest National Reserve is Kenya's only remaining tract of equatorial rainforest, which was once part of the Guinea-Congolan equatorial belt of forest that once stretched from the Rift Valley to the Atlantic Ocean 400 years ago.
Kakamega Forest National Reserve is a 230-square-kilometer (90-square-mile) swath of beautiful rainforest that is home to many species of birds, trees, and butterflies found nowhere else in Kenya and is a delightful and tranquil place for nature walks. Any serious ornithological tour of Kenya must include a visit to the forest.
The forest features towering ancient hardwood trees, tangled vines, and a dense and richly green forest floor of ferns and orchids. Some of the most popular activities in the forest include birdwatching, hiking, and rock climbing.
