Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  July   13, 2017 Mwashoti who has been very loyal and well behaved all of his life is changing in character; he is slowly becoming more playful and likes to jump on Murera and Sonje’s back whenever he sees them. So much so, the keepers are now wondering if Mwashoti is turning into a naughty boy like Alamaya who tends to push the older girls around.

Ziwa felt thirsty before moving out of the bushes and went off to the water trough. He was followed by Ngasha who pushed him out of the way then ran away to avoid being pushed into the water trough.
The babies again climbed the Umani Hills to get fresh vegetation before coming back to the feeding station at the waterhole near the lodge. There was a very large bull elephant waiting at the waterhole which proceeded to drink with them as friends whilst the keepers watched from a distance. Only Faraja and Jasiri attempted to push the large bull but after seeing the size and strength of him decided to give up.
