Found in the south-east corner of Sudan in the area to the west and north of Kapoeta with the Toposa tribe.
Descended from the first introduction of zebu into Africa from west Asia. The Toposa tribe that maintains the breed had their original homeland (Karamajong) in north-eastern Uganda, which they left some 150 years ago to settle in the Equatorial province of southern Sudan. The cattle are interbred with the adjacent Murle.
