The day turned very hot, so the orphans were anxious for their mudbath having taken their noon milk feed. They splashed themselves with the water to cool down, and took a long drink from the water drums before wallowing Two warthogs were also anxious to take a mudbath, but the orphans saw them off. All had a wonderful mudbath after which Kimana went to watch Mzima’s dusting technique, until Siria arrived to pin down Mzima with his stubby tusks, prompting him to get up rapidly! The rest of the day was spent round the northern side of the hill.
