Nursery Unit  July   15, 2017 This morning Kiko left his stockade in style as when the doors were opened wide, he exited at full speed, kicking out with both his front and back legs in pure joy for another day to begin. He then made his way out to the bush after the elephants and keepers. His high speed entrance at first scared the elephants, which was probably Kiko’s intention, but then Mbegu, Maramoja, Kauro, Rapa, Ndotto, Pare, Godoma, Lasayen and Sana Sana turned and started trumpeting and stamping their feet to scare him. Kiko quickly changed his mind against such opposition and ran back to the safety of the stockades with Mbegu and Co just behind him. Once he was out of sight all the orphans settled back down and continued with their day.
