Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  July   16, 2017 All the orphans were in a very jovial mood as they made their way to the forest this morning trumpeting and charging as they went. They could hear movement in the bushes and could not wait to see what was in there. They were quite happy when they saw some wild elephants coming out of the bushes towards them and Faraja, Jasiri and Ziwa went to greet their wild peers and the three looked tiny in comparison to the wild elephants who were not as keen on meeting the orphans and charged at them pushing them back towards the keepers and the rest of their group. Murera, and Sonje and Mwashoti were all worried that the wild elephants and their calves would get between them and together with the keepers made sure to keep their group as close to together as possible as they continued on their way.

When all the orphans arrived at the waterhole for their noon milk bottle they found that the milk had not yet arrived and were at a bit of a loss as to what to do. A few minutes later Lima Lima raised her trunk about her head and caught whiff of the approaching vehicle. When it arrived she went and tried to grab milk bottles out of the back of the vehicle wanting to get her milk before the rest. Lima Lima can be very greedy. She grabbed what she could and came back for more.
