Nursery Unit  June   14, 2016 It was a sunny and warm morning as the orphans left the stockade compound for the forest. On their way out Kamok and Roi decided to stop by Maxwell’s stockade to visit him. Kamok arrived first and stared to feast on Maxwell’s Lucerne where she was soon joined by Roi. Roi reached out with her trunk to touch Maxwell and grabbed his ear which made Max jump and start running around. He ran to the top of his stockade followed by Kamok and Roi who were trumpeting loudly exciting Max further and he ran around pushing at the gates to his stockade to get to the two girls. The game went on for a while before Kamok and Roi decide it was time to rejoin their peers.

As it was a lovely hot day the orphans enjoyed a lengthy mudbath at the public visiting hour. Dupotto, Ngilai and Mbegu led the middle aged group to the mudbath while Sokotei and Boromoko took the lead of the older group. Boromoko remained in the water the entire time he was at the visiting area and had to be cajoled out once the visitors had left as he did not want to leave the mudbath.

Sirimon has taken to behaving a little like Boromoko in the evenings. When it is time to return to the stockades for the night neither orphan wants to walk in front of the keepers. This evening they started out ahead of the keepers and when they reached the edge of the stockade compound they stopped and waited for the keepers to pass with the other orphans before making their way to their respective stackades.


Kamok can be so funny
