Ithumba Unit  July   20, 2017 Wanjala, who is slowly learning new ways to deal with his seniors, picked his share of lucerne and quickly took the branches away whilst keeping an eye on the others to make sure no one was following him to steal his treats. Lemoyian, who loves strength testing games, approached Sirimon as Siangiki walked towards Wanjala to beg for some lucerne. By the time she reached where Wanjala was standing, Wanjala had put all the lucerne quickly in his mouth, leaving nothing for Siangiki.

Out in the Park Lemoyian and Boromoko spent some time in a soil dusting game as Ukame enjoyed scratching against a nearby tree. At mud bath time, eighty elephants arrived and bathed and drank water with the orphans. During this playtime Olsekki engaged Kibo in a pushing game, which he sadly lost, whilst Garzi tackled Chemi Chemi and the rest of the orphans dusted themselves in the soil. In the afternoon, the orphans settled to browse along the Kalovoto seasonal river. In the evening twenty five wild elephants checked in at the stockade water troughs for water, including Half Trunk and Ex Orphans Orok, Zurura, Olare, Kalama, Nasalot, Ishanga and Teleki.


Siangiki and Wanjala head for browsing
