Rondo Retreat Activities - Kakamega Rain Forest - Kenya

Rondo Retreat Center Walking & Hiking Experience In Kakamega Rain Forest:
Starting with the rolling lawns and flowerbeds of Rondo’s upper garden, already alive with animals and birds. Descending in the dappled light to the fish pond and paths of the lower garden with dancing butterflies before and behind.

 

And leading out into the forest proper accompanied by a piercing cacophony, or left alone in intriguing silence never knowing what one might see around the next corner. This is one of Rondo’s very own trails that run right down to and along the Yala River.

 

Out in the sunshine again you can climb Lirhanda Hill (Smiling Bald Peter we call him) that rises above the forest canopy with stunning vistas of the forest and surrounding countryside.
