GUIDE ON KAKAMEGA FOREST NATIONAL RESERVE IN KENYA
The 360 species of birds are also incredible. Avian lovers on a Kenya birding safari will relish in taking pictures of species that are native only to Kakamega Forest like grey-chested babbler (aka grey-chested illadopsis). As you follow the trail to the higher elevations of the forest, you will also visit a cave known for its resident bats, the hammer-headed fruit bat, known to be the largest in all of Africa. The tree branches have their own residents like 7 varied species of primates including colobus monkey, potto, de brazza’s monkey, blue monkey, olive baboon, red-tailed monkey, white-nosed monkey and also reptiles like chameleons, skinks and other lizards.
The forest shrubs conceal smaller faunas like forest hogs, duikers, aardvarks, bushbucks, porcupines, mongoose and also flying squirrels. Among the predators, the forest has small cats like civets, genets and servals. This fascinating collection could be attributed to the fact that the flora of Kakamega Forest is a combination of both, those found in the higher and the lower altitudes of western Kenya. Do take the opportunity to go on the early morning twilight hike. Your trek to higher elevations will be rewarded by the superb sight of the fog on the carpet of trees around you. As it lifts slowly, you can watch as the sun rises on one of the most enchanting and unspoiled wonderlands of Africa (read more on when is the best time to go to Kakamega Forest).
