Go hiking in Kakamega

Just north of the equator, close to Lake Victoria in eastern Kenya, is Kakamega Forest — Kenya’s only tropical rainforest. Wander the forest’s network of trails and take in the huge variety of flora and fauna it supports, including hundreds of bird species, some of which are not found anywhere else.
