Some eco-tourism potential in Kituget Forest During our support in development of Kituget Participatory forest Management Forest,ERMIS Africa conducted some participatory resource mapping with the adjucent community leaving near kiptuget forest and captured some potential of eco-tourism which are yet to be exploited which nature trails,water fall,scenic sites and pre-historic caves.
The protection zone of Kiptuget forest comprise of natural indigenous forest and bamboo zone in the higher elevation areas of the forest. These zones are rich in biodiversity and serve as important water catchment areas.
Presently, access and utilization of resources in the areas is prohibited and patrolling has been relied upon as the main protection activity but despite these efforts, it has not been possible to control the level of unregulated use. As a result issues such as illegal post and bamboo harvesting, poaching, charcoal burning and animal grazing in the protection zone are rampant. In addition the areas are prone to frequent forest fires and soil erosion
The highest point in the forest also provides a great view over the surrounding area and on a clear day one could see Lake victoria.The area fall within Lake baringo and Lake bogoria Tourist circuit which could link it to Lake Nakuru National park
Kiptuget forest is part of the home of the Ogiek people. The PFMP implementation programmes will seek to capitalize on the Ogiek community’s wealth of traditional ecological knowledge and integrating some of its components with conventional conservation knowledge to maximize benefits to the community without compromising the integrity of the forest ecosystem. This will not only boost the community’s sense of inclusion but also serve as a way of passing on the traditional knowledge to the younger generation and other non-forest dwelling communities.
