Kakapel rock art

A section of the art on the rocks that shows how people lived over 2,000 years ago.

What you need to know:

  • David Coulson, founder and executive chairman of TARA — Trust for African Rock Art — first heard about the site from the well-known Kenya naturalist and film maker, the late Joan Root (a TARA supporter and adviser) when she came back from a visit to Uganda in 1996.
  • Stopping every few kilometres to make sure we are on the right track, we drive past the Equator at Maseno and the sugar fields of Luanda, Yala, and Mumias. The land is interspersed with huge rocks and hills.

The only people who seem to know about Kakapel are those who live nearby.
