About Wajir County

Part of Wajir

Tucked away in Kenya’s North Eastern region lies one of Kenya’s hidden treasures, virgin land, a spring of wealth known only to those who have been lost in the beauty of its sunset as it sets by Lake Yahud and listened to the birdsongs and whistle beckoning you to submerge yourself in the magnicent play of the sun’s rays as it sets in the horizon. For those who have savored the rich taste of goat meat cut from goats that graze its vast grasslands. This is Wajir, a land of rich resources, beautiful landscapes, exotic wildlife and irrepressible people.

Wajir is a Borana word that means coming together, bequeathed to this part of the country because of the dierent clans and pastoral communities that used to congregate in areas around Wajir town to water their animals from the abundant and dependable shallow wells that characterize the general land geomorphology.
