Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  October   12, 2017 The orphans all arrived at the mud bath area and once they had finished their milk bottles they headed straight to waterhole to cool off by wallowing and splashing mud all over their bodies. Alamaya and Mwashoti vigorously scratched their bottoms along the sides and bottom of the mud wallow. Following the mudbath the group then enjoyed a soil dusting session, covering themselves with as much soil as they could. Lima Lima did not want to exit the mud bath as she was having a wonderful time rolling around in the mud and water. She only exited the mud bath when she saw the keepers and the rest of the group leaving the area and making their way back to the forest. Sonje and Murera walked along with Alamaya and Mwashoti with Murera resting her trunk on Mwashoti’s back in a show of affection.
