Kakapel is a rock site located on a huge rock shelter in the Chelelemuk hills in Teso North sub-County, Busia County. The rock art at Kakapel is believed to have been done by the Twa (Abatwa) hunter-gatherer group. It has paintings illustrating wild animals, rain-making and initiation symbols. The site is important to Kenya’s prehistory as it is believed the art forms date over 2000 years and may be as much as 4000 years old. Generally, rock art is one of the oldest forms of art in the world. In Africa, rock art is more concentrated in Southern and Northern Africa countries.
