Ithumba Unit  August   26, 2017 The orphans were joined by Narok, Bongo, Zurura, Makireti, Kilabasi and the wild orphan in the morning. Then the senior Ex Orphans showed up and joined the rest of group to feed on lucerne. When the dependent herd was through, they headed out to the Kanziku area where they settled to browse, leaving the Ex Orphans in the stockade compound.

Enkikwe and Sirimon had a strength testing exercise that ended when Enkikwe surrendered. Boromoko had a brief chat with Tusuja while Garzi teamed up with Galla and Kamok to browse. Later, Ukame led the first group to the mud bath where they were joined by Dad, twenty wild elephants and the senior Ex Orphans. After mud bath, Lemoyian played with Boromoko while Enkikwe played with Sirimon. In the afternoon, the orphans settled to browse along the dry seasonal Kalovoto River. Enkikwe decided to climb on Olsekki which obviously annoyed him. Olsekki turned to defend himself from Enkikwe's bad manners. Their game ended in a draw when both of them got tired.


Makireti, wild orphans and Kilabasi
