The sheer volume of birdlife here is overwhelming. The forest is an extreamly important primate reserve, and the forest is full of monkeys of many species. Beautiful Chameleons are often seen in the dense undergrowth. At night the forest is a different world, the air filled with bats and ringing with the sounds of frogs, night birds and the booming call of the giant forest squirrel.
Despite its easy accessibility, Kakamega is a quiet haven for nature lovers, the perfect place to relax for a few days. The forest has many walking trails, and there are plenty of very good guides available. This is a MUST for bird lovers!
