In Western Kenya, the Kakamega forest covers 240 km2. It is a living remnant of the once great Guineo-Congolian rainforest, which stretched across Central Africa. Protected by several environmental acts starting in 1926, the Kakamega forest is now known around the world for its extraordinary biodiversity attracting the aid of several international campaigns for environmental preservation.
