Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  August   19, 2017 The orphans were eager to begin the day this morning and were quick to exit their respective stockades and drink their milk so that they could head out to the browsing fields. Murera with her boys Mwashoti and Alamaya brought up the rear of the group while the rest of the girls took the lead. Zongoloni caught the scent of some wild friends on the other side of the water springs. She raised her ears and flapped them while Lima Lima made sure to lead the group away from the area so as to ensure that they avoided the wild elephants.

The orphans stopped to browse in the Chyulu Hills area but as it was full of small rocks it was difficult for Mwashoti and Murera to walk there and as such the keepers led the group to the lower side of the Chyulus where there was some fresh greens that they could feed on as well as acacia pods in the trees.

A fight between the naughty boys Faraja and Ngasha broke out when Ngasha grabbed Faraja’s tail which Faraja was not happy about and encouraged by Ziwa, he engaged Ngasha in a pushing fight to stop Ngasha from grabbing his tail and biting it.
