Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  July   27, 2017 Today the keepers decided to give the orphans a spray to get rid of any insects that may be annoying them. Lima Lima and Quanza kept running away from the keepers who were confused as to why they would not stand still and be sprayed and only later decided that it was probably because it was rather cold. Mwashoti and Alamaya were happy to be sprayed and stood stock still as the keepers did what they needed to in order to ensure that the orphans were insect free.

Some wild elephants came around the orphans stockades at around midnight which had Murera and the other orphans rumbling and walking around their stockades. Ziwa was the making the most noise as he did not want any of the wild bulls near him. Faraja, Ngasha and Jasiri all took to pushing on the stockade gates in an effort to get to Ziwa and get him to be quiet and calm down so that the wild elephants would come closer enabling them to see them better and greet them in order to start forming some sort of friendship with them.
