Welcome to Kakamega Forest

As Kenya's last stand of tropical rainforest, Kakamega Forest National Reserve is especially good for birders, with 330 species recorded, including turacos, African grey parrots and hornbills that sound like helicopters when flying overhead. Kakamega is also home to several primates, including de Brazza's, colobus, black-cheeked-white-nosed, and Sykes' monkeys. During darkness, hammer-headed fruit bats take to the air.
