AUTHENTIC SAFARIS & PERSONALIZED TOURS IN KAKAMEGA FOREST WITH AFRICANMECCA

Kakamega is an authentic rainforest wilderness that presents you with the opportunity to view innumerable birds, butterflies, flowers, reptiles and small mammals including primates in a habitat that towers 700-year old trees, rare plants and herbs (read more on where to stay in the forests of Kakamega). You will go on walks along the distinct trails that will lead through diverse kinds of terrain. Kakamega merits the hosting of flora that is native to the highlands and lower altitudes of Kenya. You will explore grasslands, climb hills, skirt the Yala River and view the gorgeous Isiukhu Falls. Kakamega Forest National Reserve has been designated an Important Bird Area and supports more than 360 species of birds. They are most active during the mornings or early evenings calling from their roosts on the treetops. You can choose walks that take you the top of the Lirhanda Hill. From here, you can watch the sunsets or the sunrises, both equally spectacular, from high above the umbrella of the trees.On your descent, stop at the caves on the hillsides to view the largest bats in Africa – hammer-headed fruit bats.

At every step on your trail, you will encounter another of the 60 varieties of orchids (nine endemic to Kakamega) aside from the many other flowers. Your guide who is also an expert naturalist will point out to you insects that are ingeniously camouflaged by their peculiar shapes like the stick insect that is almost indistinguishable from the twigs it rests on. Primates like colobus, de brazza’s monkeys and pottos live within the forest. Also, look for the chameleons and the colors they adopt so as to fade into their surroundings or the 27 species of snakes. Kakamega is the mecca for herpetology lovers! Your guide, also an avid botanist, will amaze you with his knowledge of the names and medicinal properties of the plants and trees you see. We recommend that you visit the Tree Nursery, and if you like, you can make your own contribution to their conservation efforts by sponsoring a tree that will be planted in the botanical garden. If you are an entomology aficionado, you can hike around the forest to spot over 400 butterfly species in its varied development stages. Your specialist travel consultant at AfricanMecca will be happy to provide you with all the details you need and organize your forest walking tour of the Kakamega outback.
