At the foothills of Mt. Kenya there is a community area known as 'Wathi' near Sagana which lies within the traditional migratory route of the Mt. Kenya population of elephants, who since time immemorial have used this route to reach other ranges and fraternize with friends who live further afield. However, this area is very densely populated by the Kikuyu people, whose livelihood is agriculturally based, and who have been driven to protecting their crops by surrounding them with electric fencing.
