Voi Unit  May   12, 2017 Today Ngulia the zebra took the two orphan elands Kore and Tawi together with her precious friend Jamuhuri the buffalo on their usual running games ahead of the orphan elephants. They were extremely excited as they played and the four ran past the big water hole, traversing the air strip and running around the staff fence line on the return journey to the stockade. The keepers were following them and keeping an eye as best they could but sadly about three hundred meters from the air strip the four encountered a lion which ambushed Jamuhuri, killing him instantly. Ngulia, Kore and Tawi ran back to the stockade with the keepers catching up to them trying to calm them down and console them about the loss of their friend. Ngulia, Kore and Tawi were so sad that they didnít want to eat and were very skittish as they kept reliving Jamuhuriís attack. The keepers stayed close to them for the whole day to give them as much reassurance and comfort as they could.
