Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  October   4, 2017 Today the orphan herd made their way to the Umani Hills in search of fresh browse. They had not visited the area for a while and were hoping that they would find some nice vegetation to feed on. Ngasha and Jasiri took the lead while Murera and Sonje brought up the rear ensuring that Alamaya and Mwashoti were both away from the pushing boys who can sometimes be rather rough with the youngsters. Most of the group went quite far up the hill to browse while Sonje, Murera and Mwashoti remained close to the base of the hill as they often struggle with climbing due to the leg injuries they each have. When Lima Lima, Zongoloni and Quanza reached the peak they came across some buffaloes who were already browsing there. Lima Lima tired to scare them away but was unsuccessful because there were so many, and the three decided to browse a little further away, leaving the buffaloes to feed in peace.

Playful orphans in the morning
