Nursery Unit  August   9, 2017 The orphans went to the field and settled to browse quite early in the morning. The air was relaxed and calm as they were all so busy browsing. However, the situation suddenly changed when two fighting male impalas sprinted through the orphan herd sending them all scattering in fright in different directions. All the older orphans were shaken up and started stomping, bush bashing, charging and trumpeting whilst the smallest ones, Musiara, Sattao, Maktao, Jotto, and Enkesha were very frightened and started yelling as they ran everywhere looking for their keepers. Tiny Tamiyoi and Malima were wise enough to head back to the little boys and quietly lead them to their keepers. As they listened to the reaction of the big orphans in the bushes, Tamiyoi and Malima moved to join them but changed their minds and came back to join the babies. Tamiyoi did not want to leave them alone but wanted to comfort them since she sees herself as their mother, even though she is tiny herself.
