Ithumba Unit  July   4, 2017 Narok and Mutara’s groups spent the night just outside the stockade and joined the juniors in the morning. Wanjala and Narok greeted each other by entwining trunks before settling for some lucerne. It was a quiet morning and all the elephants were sharing the lucerne peacefully. After they had finished eating, the groups parted ways. Mutara and Narok’s group headed east while the orphans proceeded to feed in the Kone area.

The weather was quite cold today so none of the orphans wanted to wallow in the mud bath. They were joined by a wild bull elephant. The boys kept themselves busy playing pushing games. Tusuja played with Galla whilst Boromoko played with the little girl Oltaiyoni. Olsekki played with Enkikwe and Kithaka with Barsilinga. The orphans made their way back to the bush to browse and the boys continued with their pushing games along the way. Boromoko tackled Olsekki while Sirimon played with Enkikwe.

In the evening Enkikwe took a break from feeding and wandered over to a rock to test his strength. After a while he admitted defeat and walked back towards the stockade. The rest of the group followed behind him.
