Kakamega Forest stands as one of the few remaining ancient rainforests in Kenya, boasting an exceptional diversity of birdlife. Formerly a part of the expansive Guineo-Congolian forest that once blanketed Central Africa, Kakamega Forest retains its magnificence, offering a glimpse into the past.
Among its inhabitants are several mammal species, including the Bush Pig, Giant Forest Hedgehog, Colobus Monkey, Debrazza Monkey, and Pottos. However, it is renowned primarily for its stunning bird population with the Blue-headed Bee-eater, Great Blue Turaco, Ross’s Turaco, Turner’s Eremomela, and the endangered Grey Parrot being the most sought-after. If you’re coming to Kenya on a birding tour, this is simply a must.
