Ithumba Unit  October   19, 2017 It was a quiet morning as the orphans settled for lucerne without any outsiders showing up for the lucerne feeding session. Kamok took a break from feeding to scratch on a nearby rock. Half an hour later, the senior Ex Orphans showed up and joined the juniors. Yoyo spent some time familiarizing himself with Galla and Naseku and later had a playful game with Naseku.

Out in the bush, Olsekki had a brief strength testing exercise with Lemoyian as Garzi had some exercise by climbing some rocks in search of better pasture. Barsilinga settled to browse with Laragai as Boromoko teamed up with Sirimon. At mud bath time, the orphans were joined by eight wild bulls and later in the afternoon Sokotei, Enkikwe, Siangiki, Shukuru and Tusuja spent some time soil dusting. Later, the herd converged under a tree and relaxed before resuming browsing later on. Boromoko played with Kamok as Sirimon played with Enkikwe. In evening as usual, the orphans went via the mud bath for an evening cool-off before heading back to the stockades.
