The Cave Exploration Group of East Africa

Picture

The Cave Exploration Group of East Africa (CEGEA) was founded in 1964 to promote speleology (the study of caves) and encourage the preservation and conservation of caves throughout Eastern Africa. From time to time CEGEA organises trips and expeditions to the caves, which may be situated in remote areas, and the results of the explorations, descriptions and studies of these are published in the Group’s Newsletters and Bulletins. The Group maintains a library and contacts with other international cavers and caving organisations.

Membership is open to anyone interested in the sport or the science of caving, cave fauna and flora, cave photography or just want to explore one of the last places on the planet that man has yet to tread or you just want to see what lies off the beaten track.

Forest Challenge 2017

Outdoor enthusiasts will be happy to learn that East Africa Wildlife Society in conjunction with Kereita Wilderness has announced the 2017 forest challenge.

Just as a reminder, the E.A Wildlife Society Forest Challenge is a conservation awareness event that uses fun outdoor sporting activities within the forest to engage and attract people to forests. This, in turn, raises awareness for the need to rehabilitate water towers and other critical forest sites.

This event is now in its fourth edition. It will feature diverse obstacles for the participants with varying levels of difficulty. The lined up activities include: Balloon Reach, Slippery Hill, Dark Tunnel, Mud Crawl, Spider Web, Name Search, and Ditch Walk.
