Apart from monkeys and birds, you won't get to see a lot of other wildlife. In the right season, butterflies fill the forest with colourful beauty.

The Kakamega Rainforest is so beautiful! The wildlife is incredible. People come from thousands of miles away just to see the incredible birds. There are hundreds of different species of birds and butterflies in the forest. The monkeys are my favorite part! The climate is literally perfect. It is chilly in the morning and evening, and warm in the afternoon. If you want to visit the Kakamega Forest, make sure you stay at Rondo Retreat Centre, and visit the Kakamega Environmental Education Program (KEEP).
One of the few remaining primary rainforests left in Central Africa. Listening to the bonabos call in the early morning mist is one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had.

You won't find big game in Kakamega, but you will find diverse birds, reptiles, and plants. It's off the beaten track, and there probably won't be many other tourists around. That said, western Kenya is a densely populated rural area, so you are likely to see people.

Apparently quite unique wildlife (butterflies) but too small and too close to the people
Not your usual safari - it's a rain forest not a savannah. Exceptional for birding and hiking. Lots of monkeys and chimpanzees too.
