Abstract Entrepreneurial behaviour has significant influence on firm performance. It is on this basis that this study sought to examine the relationship between entrepreneurial behaviour and performance of camel rearing enterprises in Turkana County. This study utilized data from 200 randomly selected camel rearing entrepreneurs in Turkana central sub county. To test the effects of entrepreneurial behaviour on enterprise performance the scales for the dimensions of Entrepreneurial behaviour and enterprise performance were adopted from the existing literature. Reliability and validity tests were conducted for the measurement of the scales. The specific objectives were to find out the relationship between innovativeness competitive aggressiveness risk taking achievement orientation and enterprise performance. Factor analysis correlation was conducted and the findings showed that certain entrepreneurial behaviours influence enterprise performance. The study findings revealed that contextual factors did potentially shape entrepreneurial behaviour and that certain entrepreneurial behaviour dimensions and contextual factors were associated with entrepreneurial performance. These findings suggest that an increase in potential performance is possible through individual behaviour associated with an entrepreneurial behaviour. It is therefore evident that the male are more entrepreneurial than the female. Female are few in the business due to their culture and the role they hold in society.
