Ithumba Unit  July   24, 2017 Galla left the stockade with a branch in his mouth that he enjoyed feeding on since there was no lucerne for breakfast this morning. Boromoko saw how Galla was enjoying the branch and decided to try and take it for himself while pretending to have a light strength testing exercise with him. The moment they entwined their trunks, Boromoko pulled the branch from Galla's mouth and left smiling, leaving Galla regretting why he had accepted to participate in the strength testing game. Kithaka played with Sirimon as Lemoyian tackled Barsilinga. Later Boromoko settled scores with Lemoyian while Barsilinga moved to play with Kalama.

Out in the bush Garzi settled to feed with Lemoyian as Boromoko took time off to roll on the ground. Gawa and Galana paid a visit to the orphans where baby Gawa played with Naseku and later took a nap while surrounded by Oltaiyoni, Roi and Naseku.

At mud bath time, the orphans were joined by thirty five wild elephants and several Ex Orphans and when the mud bath was over, Ukame led the orphans back to the browsing field. We were happy to see Limpy at mud bath today, a wild bull that we treated for a nasty snare wound last year and that has healed nicely. In the afternoon, the orphans settled to browse in the Kanziku area up to five o'clock in the evening, when Ukame again led the first group back to the stockade.
