Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  August   14, 2017 When the elephant orphans were coming back home from a long day’s walk, they stopped by the gate where they found some pods that had been blown down by the wind during the day. Ziwa wanted to stop at the gate and pick every single one up. The keepers had to try and force him inside his pen but he refused and kept running away from the keepers to try and get back to the acacia pods! He walked outside followed by his friend Ngasha, but Ngasha came running back into the compound when he saw the keepers were planning to lock them outside! Ngasha then sneaked inside leaving Ziwa outside the gate. Ziwa eventually came back into the compound as the keepers tricked him by holding handfuls of acacia pods to get him to come inside. Murera, Sonje and the others had been so good and just walked inside for their milk as they usually do, because at midday they had had their fill of acacia seed pods whilst the keepers had their lunch under the tree by the mud hole.
