Ithumba Unit  October   25, 2018 It was wet in the morning following 12mm of rain received around dawn. The orphans walked carefully because the ground was slippery. They settled to eat their Lucerne pellets, and not one single wild elephant or ex-orphan showed up. The rain appeared to have sent them far away. The orphans were in a jovial mood following the cool temperature and settled to browse in Kone area. Roi, Mteto, Naseku and Kamok took a break from feeding to play by rolling on the ground. Galla and Namalok had a stand-off when they met to share a shrub in which each party had an interest. At last, Namalok being the junior surrendered and allowed Galla to have his way. At mud bath time, the weather was still chilly and the orphans didn't waste time; after having their milk, Oltaiyoni led the way back to the browsing field. Galla again had a strength testing exercise with Namalok, whilst Kauro opted to play with Roi. The rest of the afternoon was quiet as the orphans enjoyed the cool weather.
