Ithumba Unit  July   21, 2017 Olare and Mutara’s groups spent the night just outside the stockade. When the babies were let out of the stockades after their milk, Galla met with Kanjoro and they entwined their trunks in morning greetings. After the greetings, Galla requested Kanjoro for a little more of his time to practice some defense tactics. Kanjoro took Galla through some pushing lessons before Boromoko intervened by trying to push Kanjoro. Kanjoro quit playing with Galla and turned to teach Boromoko a lesson in how to behave when he is with his seniors. Lemoyian, Shukuru and Wanjala saw Buchuma approaching from the eastern side and walked to welcome him to the stockade compound. Buchuma returned their greeting with appreciation by rumbling as he was walked to the water trough to have some water. Garzi engaged Olare in a pushing game while Enkikwe tackled Kibo. At the browsing field, Sokotei spent played with Olsekki as Naseku settled to browse with Wanjala. At mud bath time, only fifteen wild elephants were in attendance. Soon after mud bath, the orphans headed back out to browse. The afternoon was chiller which the orphans appreciated as they could browse and enjoy every minute without overheating or having to move into the shade.
