Ithumba Unit  August   23, 2017 The orphans were joined by the senior Ex Orphans in the morning. Yetu, who no longer accompanies her mother Yatta these days, was busy shielding Kama from playing with the orphans. Later Kama managed to free herself of Yetu and went to play with Sokotei, Oltaiyoni and Naseku. An hour later, the orphans left to go and browse, leaving the Ex Orphans still at the stockade compound.

Ukame settled to browse with Naseku while Dupotto settled to feed with her friend Kamok. At mud bath, the sun was hot prompting all the orphans to have a cooling mud bath. Twenty six wild bulls attended mud bath in the company of Tomboi and Buchuma. Barsilinga had a brief chat with Buchuma before heading back to the browsing field. Karisa, Shukuru, Naseku and Dupotto took decided to relax under a tree for a bit. They later resumed browsing when the temperatures dropped and it was a bit cooler. Galla settled to browse with Siangiki and in the evening on the way back to the stockade, the orphans passed by the mud bath again where they participated in an evening wallowing.
