Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  August   22, 2017 While the orphans were browsing in the fields, breaking braches down to peel the bark and leaves off of, some wild bulls joined them and seemed to show a particular interest in Sonje who was not happy with the attention she was receiving and ran to her keepers knowing that the presence of the keepers would ensure that the bulls would not follow her.

Faraja and Jasiri decided to head in a different direction to that taken by the girls, thus disrupting their plans. The boys became very naughty and began climbing on Ngasha who was lying on the ground relaxing. Ngasha managed to get to his feet, despite the Faraja and Jasiri making it hard for him to do so, and was able to get away from the two who thankfully did not pursue him to pester him further.

Before it was time to return to the stockades for the night, Mwashoti and Ziwa walked to the water trough near the Umani Springs lodge for a drink of water. The rest of the orphans soon followed and they all had a refreshing drink before making their way to their night quarters for their evening milk bottle.
