Rufaai El Hoi, Rufaai El Sherik, Fung, Gezira, White Nile, Northern Riverain or Northern Province.
North Sudan Zebu
Nomadic cattle of northern Sudan with good dairy type characteristics and uses. Also used for beef and traction.
The traditional habitat of the Kenana is Blue Nile province, namely the east of the confluence of the Blue Nile and White Nile at Khartoum, and south-east to the Ethiopian border as well as south of Khartoum.
Descended from the first zebu introduction into Africa from West Asia. Remained largely with semi-nomadic pastoralists in northern Sudan. Gradually they have given rise to strains of Fung Kenana and White Nile Kenana.
