Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  August   5, 2017 After the short rain we received recently, some of the wild elephants that were roaming around have left the area as the water holes further afield were replenished and they did not need to visit the springs every day. However some female elephants came around with the tiny babies which they showed to Lima Lima and Zongoloni. Ngasha also wanted to meet the new baby but was kept from touching it as the mother was very careful about her baby boy. As the Murera and Sonje led the others to Umani Hills they found it was not possible for them to climb the steep slopes with their bad legs, so they both decided just to be around the slopes while Jasiri climbed to the top and waited, looking for Faraja and Ziwa to follow him; when they did not follow he just went ahead on his own.

At the milk feeding time all the babies arrived looking very thirsty for their milk bottles and after they walked away looking very satisfied.
