Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  October   25, 2017 Today the orphans exited the stockades to a welcome light rain shower which has been a long time coming. The orphans were surprised by the raindrops and some of them seemed to want to retreat back into their stockades to wait for the rain to stop. Murera and Sonje stayed back with the younger boys who wanted shelter from the rain while the rest of the orphan herd enjoyed some lucerneand waited for the rest of the group. Once the rains stopped Sonje and Murera signalled that it was time to head to the forest to begin the day’s activities.

At the noon bottle feeding area the orphans came running in with Zongoloni and Jasiri in the lead. Lima Lima was held back by the keepers to come in with the last of the orphansas she is a very greedy elephant and tries to steal milk from the others. The orphans did not want to wallow in the water today and instead enjoyed a dustbath before heading back to the browsing fields.
