Nursery Unit  October   18, 2017 It was a very peaceful morning today with none of the orphans playing or messing around like they usually do when heading out to the forest. It was all quiet, a peace which lasted for about one hour until Pare, Ngilai, Maramoja, Sapalan and Namalok popped out of the bushes running and trumpeting about something! This frightened the rest of the herd who all ran towards their keepers with the little ones like Maktao, Musiara, Sattao, Emoli, Maisha and Jotto yelling and struggling to get in front of the big ones to reach their keepers first. Mbegu and Godoma tried to console them but they would not settle until they were near their keepers. Eventually everyone settled down and went back to browsing, but Jotto, Sattao, Musiara, Maisha and Emoli didnít leave their keepers side for quite a while until they were sure everything was safe. The keepers never did find what frightened them in the first place!

Something scared Pare and others
