Ithumba Unit  August   9, 2017 The Ex Orphans were at the stockade compound in morning when the orphans came out of their stockades. Baby Kama and Gawa were in a jovial mood as they teased the orphans by charging at them. Shortly later, the orphans headed out to the Park to browse. Gawa and Kama followed the orphans for some time but they were prevented from going further by nannies Sidai, Lualeni, Ithumbah and Loijuk.

Out in the bush, Galla settled to browse with Enkikwe and later teamed up with Naseku. Tusuja browsed close to Olsekki while Roi and Ukame took a break from feeding to participate in a soil dusting exercise. At mud bath time, the orphans were joined by the Ex Orphans and forty wild elephants. Tusuja, while wallowing, had the opportunity of climbing on Sirimon while Lemoyian rode on Siangiki. When the orphans had enough of wallowing, Tusuja and Lemoyian had a disagreement that ended in a fight. Garzi, who was standing close by, intervened and pushing the two boys away. In the afternoon, the orphans settled to browse in the upper Kalovoto area. The sun was hot and the orphans took a break from feeding to relax under a tree and went back to browsing later when it was cooler.
