The Kipsigis community and their migration in Kenya:They are believed to have separated together with the Nandi from other Kalenjin groups at around Mt. Elgon region around AD 1600. They moved south west to Teo, near Lake Baringo. Due to the Maasai attacks, they moved westwards to Tambach where they stayed for a long period. They later moved southwards to Rongai near Nakuru. They only separated from the Nandi due to drought and the Maasai raids on the Nandi. The Kipsigis settled at Kipsigis Hills forming a strong community that assimilated the legendary Sirikwa and some Maasai and Abagusii groups.
