Bungoma is a melting pot of sub-tribes and cultures including the Bukusu, Teso, Sabaot, Tachoni, Batura, Bongomek and the Banubi. The fusion of the different cultures and traditions has boosted County’s potential as a destination for cultural tourism.
Still, even with the diverse cultures, Bungoma has remained the most peaceful County in the region even in the heat of politics – a fact that has seen many other communities pitch homes and businesses in the County and lifted its profile as an investment hub.
