On this page allow us to give you details about all the best attractions of Western Kenya.

This is one of the nation’s least visited regions in terms of tourism numbers.

Yet Western Kenya is an area with hidden gems for those who enjoy life off the regular tourist trail.

As one might expect, accommodation here is limited and perhaps less luxurious than elsewhere in Kenya.

However, there are lodges and camps up to three-star standard as well as a selection of other accommodation such as the bandas available at Kakamega.

The easiest way to reach this region is by regular scheduled flights into Kisumu Airport or by the generally good road from Nairobi.


This area of rich forests, swamp and strange rock formations is home to some of Kenya’s rarest animal species.

In particular, it features the rain forest of Kakamega, covering 240 square kilometres, which provides a habitat for over 300 species of birds and experiences an annual rainfall of more than 2,000 mm.

The Kakamega Forest also contains a variety of animal species including the endangered De-Brazza’s monkey, which is found in the nearby Kisere Forest Reserve.

Visitors should also consider a trip to Ndere Island in Lake Victoria, the Kisumu Impala Sanctuary or Ruma National Park – the last refuge in Kenya of the roan antelope.

This is also the only place in Kenya where it is possible to view traditional bullfighting – not quite the spectacle seen in Spain, because, in this case, the fighting takes place between two bulls.
