Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  October   10, 2017 The orphan herd was in a happy mood as they walked out of their stockades this morning and they all trumpeted loudly as they exited, stopping for a drink at the water trough. The boys in the group, led by Faraja and Ngasha, arrived and began playing mounting games with their friends. Sonje walked to the soil pile and around tothe scratching rocks where she enjoyed a scratching session. Alamaya tried to follow her but was blocked from doing so by Lima Lima who wanted Alamaya to stay with her as she feels she is more than capable of looking after the youngster as she often takes the lead of the orphan herd.

When the orphans came to the Umani Hills they found some monkeys and baboons there that were shouting and making a lot of noise. This gave the orphans a fright and they charged off in different directions. It was quite a noisy scene with the shouting monkeys and baboons and trumpeting elephants. The keepers then added to the noise by calling to the orphans to get them back into one group so that they could calm them down and they could resume with the day’s activities.
