Nursery Unit  June   24, 2016 Today very tragically at 1.05pm, Balguda breathed his last breath, watched over by his loving human family who tried all means necessary to save him, with input from numerous vets. Poor Balguda will be so missed; he was a lovely gentle elephant, and after so long with us his passing is extremely hard to take. We have to focus our attentions on the living, Balguda’s friends, and take comfort in the fact that Balguda is now resting in peace probably by his mothers side.

It seems now that Ambo is the big favourite amongst all the older females. When the orphans went back out into the bush after public visiting, Ambo was sandwiched between Oltaiyoni, Mbegu, Dupotto and Roi who were all vying to give him the most attention. Ambo is such a determined and interactive young boy and it seems his character has really captured the attention of the older females, especially Oltaiyoni and Mbegu of course.

As all this was going on the two lovely best friends Ndotto and Lasayen were busy driving warthogs who always browser next to them away. It was such a fun game for Ndotto who tried to frighten the female warthogs but without much success! He resorted to trying to pull their tails which provoked the warthogs into turning around and making Ndotto do a quick u-turn, running away from the warthog and her tusks and shouting for the help of the keepers! Lasayen was also frightened and their game quickly came to an end as they both went to hang out beside their keepers instead.


Ambo is such a big favourite with the older girls
