Famous Sites in Busia County

The Kakapel National Monument, which is located on a huge rock site in the Chelelemuk hills – just a few kilometres from the Kenya-Uganda border, is one of the top attractions of Busia County. The site that was gazetted as a national monument in 2004 comprises spectacular rock art that is believed to have been crafted by a group of hunters about 4,000 years ago. Kakapel has red paintings (drawn with fingers) illustrating animals, geometric designs and ceremonial symbols. The site is administered by the Trust for Africa Rock Art (TARA) and the National Museums of Kenya.
