Nursery Unit  August   3, 2017 As the orphans were preparing to go down for the public visit today Ndiwa, Maramoja, Ngilai, Pare and Esampu came across a gang of buffalo in the thicket. They ran towards those that were ahead of them with the keepers ready to start walking down to where their milk bottles were. This was the first group of the young ones and they made Esampu and Kuishi so nervous that they hid themselves in the middle of the group and they remained unsettled for some time. Esampu and Kuishi together with Malima came running down for their milk shouting as they ran. After they had their milk Kuishi was still in a funny mood and started causing trouble in the visiting area, running along and shoving everyone she came across. She found a bag belonging to one of the visitors by the rope cordon and mistook it for a football, and kicked it to Esampu who trumpeted and kicked it back to her but luckily a keeper got there first and removed the bag to hand it back to the owner! Kuishi ran over to the keeper and tried to snatch the bag away from him but in vain. They went on causing trouble until their time was up and they returned to the forest with the rest of the young group.
In the second group of orphans Maramoja seemed to really like the lucerne pellets today. When she arrived at the ground she ran for the pellets before going for her milk bottle! In between her two bottles she took a break for some more pellets too, before returning to finish her second bottle. She charged at Lasayen and Rapa whenever they tried to share some of the pellets in that pile too.

Ngilai came across some buffalos
