Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  August   24, 2017 Once the orphans had finished their morning milk bottle they headed to the Lucerne feeding area and found some buffalo and dikdiks feeding on the supplements that had been put out for them. Quanza came running in and found that there were no pellets or lucerne left for the orphans to enjoy, but the keepers were quick to bring more!

Zongoloni wanted to head towards the Chyulu Hills to browse today but when she saw that Ziwa and Alamaya were not with her she decided to stop and join up with Lima Lima who had the babies with her and was headed in a different direction, while Sonje and the boys seemed to want to go in a different direction entirely. The orphans browsed on the Umani Hills until it was time for the noon milk bottle and mud bath. As they were headed down the hill they came across some army ants. Some of the orphans stopped and carefully sniffed at the ground being careful to make sure that no ants would go up their nose and bite them.
