Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  August   7, 2017 The orphans were in a very active mood this morning and came out of their stockades into the forest trumpeting, trying to charge at anything that crossed their paths. Following the heavy trumpeting from the big girls, even the little boys joined them, blowing out little trumpets with their little trunks. Alamaya and Mwashoti did it for longer even after the Matriarchs’ stopped, charging around in the bushes. Some wild elephants were also heard trumpeting in the distance, blowing back in response to the babies who had changed to charging around after the antelopes and monkeys before them.

When Sonje brought Mwashoti and Quanza for the 11am bottle feeding, a buffalo appeared, crossing to drink water on the other side of the mud pool. It looked scared by the presence of the keepers around the waterhole. In the evening after a day of long walks and browsing on the hills, the keepers called Lima Lima to lead all the orphans back home for the evening and for the last bottle feeding of the day.
