Ithumba Unit  July   7, 2011 At dawn, Makena, Kamboyo and Tomboi reported at the stockade water trough. Shortly later, Meibai, Naserian, Lenana, Wendi and Sunyei joined them and as soon as the Juniors emerged from their Night Stockade, the rest of the Ex Orphaned group arrived accompanied by the wild recruit named "Kijana" and some other wild friends. Wendi and Galana greeted the babies extending their trunks towards them, but were obviously anxious to keep pace with their wild friends who were departing. At 11 a.m. the Juniors headed towards the mudbath, meeting up with the Ex Orphans, Kijana and the wild elephants en route. They then all headed together for the mudbath, separating from the Juniors afterwards. In the evening "Rafiki" (the orphans' first wild friend turned up for a drink at the Stockade trough.
