Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  August   15, 2017 A very big wild bull elephant visited the orphans after mud bath at midday. They shared water with the wild bull who also looked very thirsty and had walked very far looking for water. Faraja wanted to play with this calm bull but he was just too huge to play with! Ngasha came and stood next to them both and they looked like such tiny babies next to the big bull elephant. Sonje and her friend Murera and the big boy Jasiri kept away, looking and smelling him from far away and not wishing to get close to him. None of the orphans went into the mud bath to play because the bull elephant scared every one away with his huge tusks and they didnít want to get knocked by one in the water!
