Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  July   2, 2017 In the morning, after munching on Lucerne, the group were at the waterhole drinking while Sonje had a good scratch against the loading bay. Monkeys with young came to the water troughs for a drink but were quickly blocked by Ziwa and some of the other boys. Trumpeting and charging ensued, Quanza was especially loud which encouraged the other orphans to join in and they drove the monkeys away. The monkeys were jumping about and hid in tall trees, they were too quick for the keepers who tried to chase them off. Murera and Sonje with their baby Mwashoti were clearly protecting their keepers and keeping them safe.
