Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  August   16, 2017 Some noisy wild elephants came to the stockades during the night looking for water to drink. One of the babies in the wild herd was pushed by a bull elephant and it screamed loudly calling its mother to come and help it get more water as it seemed to want to climb into the water trough. The keepers heard the screaming and came out of their tents to see what the problem was, thinking that something may have been happening in the stockades with Mwashoti or Alamaya. When they saw the wild herd at the stockade they realized where the noise was coming from and were relieved that nothing was happening to their babies.

In the morning Zongoloni and his friends headed to the water springs for some water before they walked to the Kenze Hills where they knew they would find some lovely fresh branches that they could feed on. Ziwa has become somewhat naughty and defiant and has taken to not listening to the keepers and going wherever he wants. Today was no exception and the keepers had to get Murera and Sonje’s assistance to get him to fall in line and follow the rest of the group.
