Ithumba Unit  June   26, 2017 This morning Lemoyian started play fighting with Sokotei and they pulled vigorously at each other’s trunks. Some Ex Orphans from Mutara's group with Orwa, Vuria and Bomani in the group arrived. They drank water and joined the orphans. After few minutes Kilabasi, Makireti and Kasigau also came to join the orphans group too. Orwa was being friendly with Garzi and then they started playing. A while later the whole group walked to the bush for browsing.

They all browsed together until Olare's group came to join them. Now the big family was all together and they all spread out to interact with each other. The orphans were very happy and comfortable in their company. Roi later led the group to mudbath.

There were a few wild elephants wallowing and some of the orphans joined them, however it was not very hot today and most of the elephants chose not to swim. Bomani, Vuria and Narok came in later and join the wallowing group. Olare was rolling on the ground playing. Boromoko started play fighting with Lemoyian and he was enjoying the wrestling game as his tusks are longer than Lemoyian’s. Kithaka and Garzi were busy scratching on the fallen trees while Orwa and Kitirua started play fighting again. The group later headed back to the bush.
