Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  October   21, 2017 The weather was chilly this morning which left the orphans subdued as they made their way to the bushes. Mwashoti and Murera were most affected by the cold and walked much slower than the rest of the group. When it is cold it takes a while for them to warm up and for their muscles to become looser so that they can move together with the rest of the group and not lag behind.

While browsing in the bushes some bushbucks came running past them from the opposite direction. The orphans were worried that something made them run. The keepers and Lima Lima went to investigate and found a herd of buffalo, and assumed that must have been what upset the bushbuck. Realising that everything was okay, the orphans continued with their browsing activities until it was time for the noon milk feed.
