Village Visiting


Usually pastoral groups are migrating into the Fentale highlands for grazing or in small pockets like Alideke located in the Awash National Park. Groups based in Kabana kebele migrate to Argobba area or even farther out. During the wet season, pastoralists take advantage of the Alta hillside, a place with good drainage in the Fentale mountains, for grazing in the west in order to minimize the risk of bovine pneumonia in weak animals. For the dry season, the usual pattern of movement is to drive livestock to the kalou around Doho, Sabure, Boulaita and Kabana kebele. If it is dry, they usually go back to the hillside.
Only few migrations outside the woreda have been reported recently, as pastoralists are limited in their movements by the ongoing conflicts.
