Kakamega is a town in western Kenya lying north of the equator. It is the headquarters of Kakamega county and is found near Kisumu, the third-largest city in Kenya. Kakamega county is itself the second largest county in Kenya after Nairobi.

The British developed Kakamega for defensive purposes in 1903, and by 1920 it had become the district headquarters. The discovery of gold in 1931 brought an influx of settlers and greatly increased the town’s population. Its local inhabitants are mostly members of the Luhya tribe, whose main economic activity is farming and fishing.

Kakamega serves as the headquarters of Kenya’s largest sugar-producing firm, Mumias Sugar, located in the town of Mumias.
Kakamega Forest is the main tourist destination in the area, and the local inhabitants organise guided tours through the forest. Another attraction is the Crying Stone of Ilesi located along the highway towards Kisumu. It is a 40 metres high rock dome resembling a crying human figure,
It is also home to Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology, as well as several secondary and high schools.
