Nursery Unit  October   19, 2017 Sagalla is pretty settled within the orphan herd these days and with her new human family too. She has made some friends including Ndiwa, Mundusi, Maramoja and young ones like Emoli and Maisha too. She has been polite and gentle in her approach towards the others which has meant it has been easy for her to make friends. She has a unique feature which distinguishes her from all the others in the Nursery and that is her extraordinary long eyelashes and long tail hairs more than we have ever witness before!

Ndiwa is a very fast learner. We have seen this since her early arrival here when she quickly learnt about all the bottle feeding places and we continue to see this trait in her. She has often had to change stockade due to the new arrivals from the drought in Tsavo, and she has never failed to remember her new room. When she comes home in the afternoon she goes right into her new stockade and without a fight, unlike others when they are first getting used to their new pen! She is a lovely young girl.

Up until now Namalok has not learnt to take his milk from a bottle and it is funny to watch him in the bush take it straight from the wheelbarrow. He loves the milk but is still so shy to take it from a bottle from the keepers, even after watching the other orphans do just that; he is a funny bull!
