Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  August   21, 2017 During the night some wild elephants were heard around the stockade compound. The keepers heard some loud screaming and came running out of their tents. The keepers first checked on Muerea and Sonje and found them sound asleep. They then went round the rest of the stockades and found that Lima Lima was lying on the ground shouting while Quanza stood watching. The keepers could not see anything wrong and figured that Lima Lima must have been dreaming and was reacting to something that happened to her in her dream.

Alamaya and his friend Mwashoti seemed a little on edge in the morning following Lima Lima’s yelling last while Ziwa and the rest of the orphan herd seemed to be more relaxed. At the mudbath the babies took their time wallowing with Zongoloni pushing Ngasha out of the way so as to create room for Alamaya to enjoy a wallow by her side.
