Abstract
Karamoja District lies in the north-east of Uganda and measures, with the inclusion of the Karasuk area of Kenya which is administered by Uganda, about 13,000 square miles. Ecologically, the District is similar to many of the dry areas of East Africa; the central and eastern areas consists of eroded bushcovered land, while the western and northern areas carry tree savannah and savannah woodland. During the dry season which is often of five to six months duration (October to April), grazing in the eastern parts becomes acutely short and browse plants then become important items of the animal's diet.
