Nursery Unit  June   3, 2016 At about 9am, which is a feeding time for the orphans, Murit and Sana Sana decided to make their way to the 11am mudwallow. Despite being a new orphan at the Nursery, Sana Sana took the lead. Murit is still a rather weak little elephant but is always very welcoming and gentle with any orphan, and the two are sometimes seen spending the day in one anotherís company. Upon arriving at the mudbath the two were surprised to find that there was no milk bottle waiting for them. Sana Sana cried out in protest while Murit led his friend to the bottle feeding area in the forest where the two, despite their detour, arrived just before the other orphans and as such, were the first to enjoy their milk feed.

At the public visiting hour the first group of orphans quickly downed their bottle of milk, after which Ngilai and Ndotto took to playing with the school children. Ngilai approached the children with his trunk outstretched in welcome making them scream in delight. He then started walking along the rope cordon so that they could touch him. Ndotto then ran up to Ngilai and tried to climb on him, all of which took place in front of the children who were so happy to have this lovely experience of the two orphans playing before their eyes.


Murit is a friendly elephant
