Bird Watching in Kenya takes place in the Kakamega Forest Reserve; a beautiful rain forest with myriad varieties of birds Adam Gotsis Broncos Jersey , animals and butterflies, Virtually all of the Rift Valley Lakes, Mount Kenya and its sorrounding, the Lake Victoria Region and the Masai Mara National Reserve to mention but the least.

Kakamega Forest Reserve is home to the almost extinct De Brazza's monkey, the red tailed monkey, black colobus monkey, white colobus monkey, fruit bats and flying squirrels. However the mother of all attractions is the bird watching excursions in the Kakamega Forest Reserve. This reserve boasts to over 330 of bird species and over 400 species of butterflies. A visit to this reserve will sure treat you to a vatriety of plant life, unique due to the fact that Kakamega Forest Reserve is a virgin tropical forest especially in the northern side.

The best times to visit the Kakamega Forest Reserve is in June, July, August through to october. During these times thousands of Migratory birds arrive. The Kakamega Forest Reserve is usually in full bloom at this time and is a magnificiet site to behold. Its during these times also that circumcision, a practice very important to the local community is performed. On sundays you will sure be treated to bull fights and cock fights organised by the local communities of Khaemba and Shinyalu within the Kakamega Forest Reserve.

Walking through the Kakamega Forest Reserve is the best way to appreciate its bio-diversity. I would not encourage you to make four wheel drive travel through the forest since the trails and the paths are not meant for vehicles and you could easily scare away the birds and animals that you intended to see. Its advisable to take a trained guide with you at a small fee. This guides have a lot of invaluable information and details that you could make do with, apart from guiding you through the trails.

Although bird watching is the reason visitors come to Kakamega Forest Reserve, one will well be treated to fantastic nature walks along the Yara river, Lugusida river, Isiukhu river and the Ikuywa river. Its interesting to watch the isukhu falls on the Isiukhu River, to climb to the Buyanga Hill lookout in the Northern side of the forest to watch the sunrise and Lirhanda Hill lookout in the south to watch the sunset. You could also see the Crying Stone situated to the south of Kakamega town, half way on your way to shinyalu.

The Kakamega Forest Reserve is not short of places to eat, sleep and while away your evenings. You could stay at the Udo's Bandas and campsite near the Kenya Wildlife offices overlooking the Isiukhu Falls in Buyangu area, The Forest Rest House and Keep Center at Isicheno and The Sarova isle Resort. Be sure also to check out the Rivendell Gardens and the Rondo Retreat.

Wouldn't it be nice if finally you could know the truth as to why you find it impossible to shed and then keep off that excess weight?? It does seem odd doesn't it that there are endless diets and exercise regimes out there, each one supposedly to be better than the rest, and an enormous and ever increasing number of pharmaceutical weight loss drugs, and still obesity is a bigger problem in the western world than ever before in history. And of course where obesity is, illness and chronic degenerative disease follow.

It's not like we haven't been told that we need to count those calories, adhere to diets, take those appetite suppressants, spend more time in the gym, increase those proteins and cut out those nasty carbohydrates, grow your own food organically, raise some grass fed cattle, milk your own cow, or perhaps if that is too tricky, become a vegan, take those vitamins and powders, and drink gallons of water, that is of course if it is purified, or distilled, or energised or alkalised or fresh from the Hunza region or whatever else the latest damn fad is. Oh, and don't forget, it is imperative that you don't stress out because stress will make you fat and sick too! Are you beginning to see the irony here?

Now it has occurred to me, and probably more than a few others as well, that if all of these things were on their own, or in combination, the definitive answer to our problems there wouldn't still be a 40% rate of obesity in America. Problems such as childhood diabetes that was never even heard of in times past, most certainly wouldn't be in almost epidemic proportions in the western world today, and chronic diseases that can, and all too often do, mean a death sentence for us would be a distant nightmarish memory. Am I right? Surely, we would simply follow the advice that is dished out to us so generously, and all would be well. Perhaps, now that we are all totally exhausted with the well meaning advice, we just might need to change focus. What are we overlooking that is a major contributing factor to us being fat and sick? Could it just possibly be that the state of the environment we live in could hold a major clue?

Toxic pollution we have created in our environment and continue to create in ever increasing amounts with our eyes blindly fixed on profit, is the sinister underlying reason why we are all suffering from various degrees of imbalance and ill health.

If you think our inner terrains are much different to the sadly toxic state of the environment we live in, then think again. We do after all live on this planet and rely on it's bounty for our very survival. Surely in order to reach the goal of vibrant good health and ideal weight we are, each and every one of us, going to have to clean house, so to speak.
