Range & Habitat
About 2,200 Boran cattle, a kind of domestic livestock, live at Mpala. Some 7,000 of these cattle—the world’s largest herd—live at the neighboring Ol Pejeta ranch in Laikipia. In this unique area, conservationists strive to combine wildlife conservation with agricultural pursuits.
Boran cattle are well adapted to living on dry savanna and shrubland where water can be scarce.
