Ithumba Unit  July   18, 2017 The orphans settled for lucerne soon after leaving the stockade. Kamok,Tusuja and Ukame spent scratched on the nearby rocks as Lemoyian engaged Boromoko in a strength testing exercise. Mutara then rumbled to signal to her friends that it was time to leave. Out in the Park the orphans concentrated mainly on browsing, because if they did not then they would be hungry later. Vegetation is now changing colour and this is an indication of the onset of the dry season.At mud bath time, twenty bulls were in attendance and among them was Orok, who appears to have found a new boys club. In the afternoon, the orphans settled to browse on the slopes of Ithumba Hill and had a quiet afternoon. In the evening fifteen wild elephants reported for water at the stockade water troughs.
