Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  October   18, 2017 The orphans were in a happy mood when they left the stockade compound this morning and made their way to the water springs following the path taken by some of their wild friends the night before. The path was full of fresh dung and Murera kept stopping to pick up some dung and eat it. Eating the dung of wild elephants is one of the ways that the orphans learn what vegetation is the best to feed on.

When the orphans arrived at the Chyulu Hills today to browse, Quanza managed to find some fresh sweet branches to feed on and this meant she did not want to return to the mud wallow for the noon milk feed. Quanza is really old enough to be able to survive without milk and is not greedy like Lima Lima who always wants more than her share with the milk bottles, never arriving fast enough for her liking.
