Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  August   8, 2017 The orphans found no water in the water trough this morning. When Alamaya went to look for some water he found none inside because their wild friends had drunk it all in the night. The keepers turned the tap on so the babies could have some water.

Zongoloni took some of the babies along the Umani Hills circuit, as some of the others headed to the side of the Kenze Hills for more greens because the slopes of the Umani Hills were getting quite dry after many buffaloes had come there to feed and had finished a lot of the green vegetation.

After a long walk to Kenze hills, Quanza lost which way Ziwa and Faraja with Alamaya had gone. Alamaya shouted for some reason but Quanza was then able to find him where the other boys were hiding, and she found all the boys there together with Sonje and Murera browsing peacefully.

At the 11am bottle feeding time, Alamaya came and picked up his own bottle in style just like Zongoloni and Jasiri do; a trick he has managed to master from watching them!
