Olkirimatian Group Ranch Field Visit

The Ecoboma project staff, together with a group of the project’s beneficiaries, went to Kenya from June, 20th to June, 22nd to visit a model of sustainable rangeland management.

It is called Olkirimatian, a 24000 Ha (240 km2) group ranch located in Kajado District, Magadi Division. It is one of the 16 Kenyan group ranches and it is the most profitable and the main livelihoods are a combination of livestock keeping, tourism and farming activities.
The Ecoboma project team identified this ranch as a case study for its strong similarities with the communities targeted by the Ecoboma project. Village chairmen, community representatives, district livestock officers and the Ecoboma technical team exchanged knowledge and experience with the Olikirimatian and Shompole ranch managers, technical committees, community representatives and women groups.
