In the morning, just as the orphans were leaving for the field, the Ex Orphans and some wild elephants reported at the stockade water trough. The wild elephants weren’t even scared of the lorry that was filling the water trough but continued to drink as the water flowed into the water trough with a man standing on the back of the lorry within trunk reach. After getting enough, the herd headed west of the stockades. The same group joined the Juniors at their mud bath and after that a soil dusting session before departing. Lualeni led the babies to the slopes of the Ithumba hill where they settled to browse till evening.
