Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  July   10, 2017 The orphans began their day walking towards the Kenze base line, led by Lima Lima and Zongoloni. They were looking for fresh vegetation to browse on before climbing the hills. Below the hills is a swampy area where the boys Jasiri and Faraja were walking very slowly. A rustling in the bushes caused all eyes to look around and wonder what was approaching from the forest. Zongoloni and Quanza were looking scared as well as the keepers who thought it could be a wild bull elephant. All were ready to run, leaving Jasiri to try his luck with the bull elephant. What emerged were two waterbuck looking to cross their path.

The babies came to get their midday feed as usual. Lima Lima, the good runner, came last today as she was held back by the keepers so as not to disturb the little boys.
