Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  October   5, 2017 The orphans were in a jovial mood as they exited their stockades this morning. Mwashoti came out trumpeting loudly followed by Murera and Zongoloni who trumpeted a greeting back to him. Sonje was in a bit of a destructive mood and started pushing and kicking at the trees around the stockade compound. This seemed to get the rest of the group quite active and Murera started charging and trumpeting loudly setting in motion a trumpeting and charging game which continued all the way to the water springs. The noise didnít stop when they arrived at the springs and the orphans were so boisterous that the crocodiles around the water springs made sure to slide into the water and remain hidden until the orphans had left, after which they came out again for a sunning session.
