Exploring Kakamega Rainforest, Kenya

During our stay in Kenya, we didn’t want to miss to explore the country’s only rainforest. The famous tropical rainforest is 240 km² wide and inhabited by around 300 different kinds of trees, bushes, orrchids and farns as well as numerous different birds and monkeys.

Our guide Moses did a great job in explaining different plants’ functions – rural medicals use some of them to treat illnesses – and spotting monkeys for us.

Good thing I had bought a new camera before leaving to Kenya which enabled me to zoom in well enough to snap pictures of some of the monkeys high above our heads.
