WAJIR – a county of plentiful
Wajir is a remote town located in the far north eastern corner of Kenya, bordering Ethiopia and Somalia. Semi-desert with soaring day time temperatures and very little annual rainfall, yet the county supports vast herds of livestock with great market value, has abundance of underground aquifers and pockets of forests!
The town itself is rich in cultural history – and some original structures still stand including the old mosque, a courthouse, an abandoned fort, colonial buildings – and quiet interestingly the Royal Wajir Yacht Club – miles away from any ocean and no lake or river in sight!
