Mgeno Ranching Company Limited focuses on the livestock keeping, protection and management of land, this has earned the ranch carbon credit from the Kenya wildlife carbon. We also keen on wildlife conservancy. We have developed a special relationship with people boarding the ranch.
The locals co-exist with the wild animals and most of the time stray animals are quickly reported for fast response and action to avert human lose and destruction of property. We ensure the surrounding community benefit from the ranch by providing jobs and ensuring registered farms and individuals use our water points for their livestock. We also forging a common stand with other ranches for the benefit of the communities due to increase in competition for vital land resource such as water, grazing grass and firewood due to rapid population We have water pans, dams bore hole to provide water for animals to drink water from.
