Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  August   9, 2017 The elephants walked a very long distance today, making it very hard to walk back for the midday bottle feed and we had to move with the bottles all the way to where Murera and the babies were enjoying the greens on the hills near the Chyulu Hills. When Lima Lima heard the vehicle she knew it would be the white one, which she knows is the one carrying their bottles as she is very clever!

The bottles were being off-loaded from the truck to the ground as Mwashoti and Alamaya came running over and just grabbed the bottles before we finished putting them on the ground! Lima Lima, Zongoloni and Alamaya left after they had finished their bottles and started walking back towards the hills. Zongoloni accidentally touched a beehive and some bees came out and the keepers ran to avoid their stings but some got Alamaya on his little stump and he screamed loudly for help. Sonje and her friend Murera ran to see why Alamaya had screamed but a keeper called them all further away so that none of them would get stung any further!
