Ithumba Unit  October   15, 2017 Twelve wild elephants led by One Tusk were drinking water at the stockade water troughs when the orphans were let out. Karisa left the stockade with a branch in his mouth that he continued to enjoy while waiting for lucerne. Narok appears to have spent the night with Olare’s group just outside the stockade, and walked into the stockade to find out whether there were any leftovers. Yatta and her group joined the juniors when they were eating lucerne. Nasalot was missing with her baby Nusu. When it was time to leave, Barsilinga was left behind with the Ex Orphans and followed his friends later, after he had spent enough time with the others.

Tusuja and Boromoko were enjoying a pushing game when Garzi intervened by pushing the two boys away. Naseku spent some time playing on a termite hill as Lemoyian played with Wanjala. Ukame used a nearby rock to scratch her belly as Kithaka attempted to ride on Tusuja. At mud bath time, the weather was chilly and none of the orphans dared to touch the water. Barsilinga briefly played with Kithaka before Narok, who had joined the juniors in the morning, led the way back to the browsing field. The orphans settled to browse in the Kanziku area. Siangiki settled to browse with Enkikwe while Sirimon settled to browse with Wanjala and Galla. In the evening, the orphans headed to the mud bath for an evening cool-off before heading back to the stockade.
