Ithumba Unit  July   7, 2017 Soon after leaving the stockade, the orphans were joined by Mutara and her group and settled to feed on lucerne together. Kainuk and Kanjoro were so happy and relaxed that they crossed their back legs in a show of satisfaction. Soon after sharing the lucerne, Mutara and her group headed east of the stockade while the orphans headed west and settled to browse in the Kanziku area. Barsilinga and Sirimon had a moment of scratching on rocks that they came across in the bush as the rest of the herd concentrated on browsing.

Tomboi, Orwa, Narok, Bomani and Vuria arrived early at mud bath and relaxed under a tree as they waited for the juniors. When the juniors arrived at mud bath, Narok rushed to welcome them. Shortly later Makireti, Kilabasi, Kasigau and Kilaguni checked in and headed straight to join Tomboi, Shukuru, Boromoko, Sirimon, Oltaiyoni and Siangiki who were wallowing. Soon after mud bath, Tomboi headed for soil dusting while Kilaguni and Kasigau spent some time in a strength testing exercise. Shortly after the orphans returned back to the browsing field, eight wild elephants checked in and joined Tomboi, who had been left behind. Whilst browsing, Enkikwe spent some time playing with Sirimon while Lemoyian tackled Sokotei in a game that ended in a draw. Later in the day, Yatta and her group reported for water at the stockade and left soon after drinking enough water.
