Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  July   7, 2017 Some rogue buffalo got mixed up with the orphans and started to play around in the bushes where Murera, Sonje and Mwashoti were. When Lima Lima saw the buffalo she went to inform her keepers that they should move to a safer area. The keepers shouted to move the buffalo on as they could see Lima Lima, Sonje and Murera wanted to come out of the thick vegetation and into the open space. Trumpeting and charging then carried on for the day, kicking and trampling on browse that had fallen in their path. The elephants ran to their bottle feeding before having a mud and dust bath together. A bull elephant came to the waterhole to drink with Ziwa and Zongoloni but Lima Lima whispered to her friends that they should run away.
