A male calf estimated to have been born in July 1999, this young "toughie" from the North was 1 month old when rescued; also a victim of the wells dug by tribesmen for their livestock. He takes his name from the Sugar Loaf mountain of the North known as Olololokwe meaning "far away mountain". He, Salama and another little bull called "Nyiro" share the same rugged bull face and look very much alike. We can't help wondering if they have the same "Dad". One finger of Lolokwe's trunk is damaged, hanging loose, probably slashed by tribesman having been pulled out of the well. However, he copes very well and is luckier than Loisaba. He loves to tussle with his peers, often interrupting bouts between Laikipia and Salama.



He is a bold and spirited very lively individual. Very popular within the younger bull set. Tends to be on the pushy side amongst the girls.
