Ithumba Unit  August   15, 2017 Half Trunk with orphans Sunyei, Orok, Ololoo, Meibai, Loijuk in the company of Mutara’s group were at the stockade compound when the orphans were let out. Dupotto was the first one to leave the stockade followed by Galla. Roi left the stockade with a branch in her mouth that she continued to enjoy feeding on as she waited for the decision of which direction they were going to take this morning. Sirimon kept himself busy by playing with Kanjoro. Shortly later, Shukuru led the way to the browsing field where Boromoko and Naseku had a warm up exercise of pushing each other while Lemoyian tried to ride on Tusuja. The orphans were joined by Mutara and her group where Kanjoro briefly settled to feed with Wanjala before heading to chat with Boromoko. At eleven o'clock in the morning, Mutara and her group escorted the juniors to the mud bath where fifteen wild bulls were in attendance.

After mud bath, Kamok took Dupotto under a tree as they waited for the next group to come for their milk. Later, Mutara led the group to Kalovoto area where they settled to browse. Shortly before evening Mutara and co withdrew from the orphans and walked off into the Park.
