Now, the largest fragment is Arabuko-Sokoke Forest, which covers 400 km2.Take a look at our Gede sightseeing planner to schedule your visit to Arabuko-Sokoke Forest and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
It’s one of the most important forests for wildlife in all of Africa, providing a home for six globally threatened birds, two remarkable species of elephant-shrew and about a hundred African Elephant. If anywhere in the world should be protected for its unique wildlife, it’s this forest.
Now, it’s threatened by seismic surveys for gas and oil. Roads are already being cleared into the forest. A Rocha, other NGOs and local community leaders have sent petitions to government bodies, asking for the surveys to be stopped.
