Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  August   11, 2017 Some of the orphans came out trumpeting and charging in the bushes this morning. Sonje joined the playful babies until Alamaya fell over knocking his knee, but he got up again and continued running fast to get away from Zongoloni who was trying to push him from behind in his bottom. The keepers tried to stop them from charging off into the distance but only Mwashoti stopped and walked back to join Murera who had not joined in the charging.

The Chyulu Hills was the next stop where all the trumpeting babies stopped and started to browse on the hills there. Some impalas crossed their path on their way out to hills and scared a few of the orphans who then changed direction. It is usually Quanza and Mwashoti who are scared the most easily when something crosses their path!
