Wajir is a Borana word that means coming together, bequeathed to this part of the country because of the different clans and pastoral communities that used to congregate in areas around Wajir town to water their animals from the abundant and dependable shallow wells that characterized the general land geomorphology. 

Wajir was established in 1912 by the British and it served as their colonial headquarters. Wajir town is one of the oldest in Kenya after Malindi and Mji wa Kale in Mombasa.

The entire County enjoys abundant sunshine throughout the year, with vast tracts of land devoid of vegetation for solar power generation. The maximum temperatures range between 31oC in July and 36oC in March while minimum temperatures range between 21oC in July and 24oC in April.

The Eastern part of Wajir is covered with naturally growing thickets and forests that yield the largest quantities of gums and resins produced in Kenya more than half of the world’s supply.
