Nursery Unit  April   23, 2016 As the second group of orphans was coming down to the public viewing area they walked in an unusual way; normally the greedy boys will always come running down to get their bottle but today greedy Olsekki, Enkikwe, Sokotei and Boromoko were all seen walking rather daintily down as they allowed others to pass them… this is something they have never done before! Soon after finishing their bottles, two warthogs stole the show by dramatically rolling in the muddy soil right next to the rope cordon. However their jovial moment of enjoying the mud bath took a new twist when Kauro began charging and chasing them around the mud pool… but poor Kauro accidentally slipped and fell into the mud himself! He got out though and followed the warthogs who had moved on to enjoy the water of a little running stream that had formed in the area from the rainfall. Kauro kicked a huge amount of water at them which saw them run away into the nearby bushes leaving Kauro charging and trumpeting as he enjoyed running alongside the water kicking it with his feet in victory.
