Ithumba Unit  August   22, 2017 The orphans were joined by Mutara’s group and a wild bull in the morning. Soon after sharing lucerne, the orphans headed towards Kone area where they settled to browse. Boromoko started the day’s activities by engaging Olsekki in a pushing game that ended in a draw. Ukame, Karisa, Dupotto and Kamok took a break from feeding to participate in a soil dusting exercise. Shortly later, the orphans were joined by Olare’s group. Garzi and Kithaka ganged up against Chemi Chemi but Kandecha, who was feeding close by, came to Chemi Chemi's rescue by pushing Garzi and Kithaka away. Karisa settled to feed close to Tumaren while Oltaiyoni teamed up with Melia and Kalama. At mud bath time, the orphans were joined by twenty wild bulls.

Soon after they were done wallowing in the mud, Shukuru led the way back to the browsing field. The weather was chilly and the orphans concentrated on browsing throughout the afternoon without any major observation.
