Ithumba Unit  October   8, 2017 The Ex Orphans joined the orphans for lucerne in the morning. Kama was in a playful mood and kept charging at the orphans from time to time. She played with Naseku, Olare and Boromoko. Later Kama briefly sniffed at baby Yoyo and walked to her mother. The herd parted ways an hour later with the orphans heading east as the Ex Orphans headed west. Kamok made a mistake of leaving with the Ex Orphans but moments later, she was escorted back to her group by Sidai. Seven buffaloes came for water at the stockade water troughs and then left. A wild herd with a new born baby checked in at the stockade compound and left soon after having water; the nannies were heavily guarding the baby.

Out in the bush, Roi settled to browse with Olsekki while Barsilinga engaged Kithaka in a pushing game. At mud bath time, the orphans were joined by the Ex Orphans where Yatta brought Yoyo for his first mud bath. After mud bathing, Galla, Barsilinga and Ukame spent some time soil dusting. In the afternoon, the orphans settled to browse in the Kanziku area. The sun was still hot and the orphans spent a lot of time relaxing under a tree. In the evening, they passed by the mud bath again to cool off.
