Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  August   10, 2017 As all the elephants came out from their pens to begin their day, Sonje walked to the water trough looking for clean water but found none as it has all been drunk by the wild elephants in the night again, and the keepers had to turn the water on to make sure they got some too.

When all the babies got to the water springs they followed the path of the wild elephants and even followed some of the dung droppings to find where the bull elephants had gone. Zongoloni put some pieces in her mouth to analyse them while Jasiri and Ngasha continued looking for the wild bulls to play with. When they found the bulls it was a question of if the young boys would be accommodated or pushed away by the wild ones. When Ngasha went to a big bull and touched his tail the wild elephant was not happy and he and Ziwa had to leave and run away back to the orphans where Quanza was with Faraja.
