Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  October   29, 2017 Many wild elephants came along to the stockade water trough for clean water with some bulls making a lot of noisy complaints among themselves. The orphans rumbled back to communicate with them in a low tone and we wondered what they could have been saying to the big bulls. Ziwa and Ngasha tried pushing against their walls to walk out and meet the wild friends. Obviously they could not push the wall but eventually Ziwa managed to push open his gate and he went out to greet the wild elephants. After the wild elephants walked away he felt very lonely outside and began shouting and charging around the fence line. Murera and the others friends began shouting loudly in return, and pushing against their walls. When the keepers opened the gate for Ziwa to come back into the compound, he was welcomed by happy trumpeting from all his friends.
