Ithumba Unit  July   9, 2017 Olare and Narok’s groups spent the night just outside the stockade and joined the juniors soon after they were let out. After sharing some lucerne together, Garzi tackled Kalama in a strength testing exercise; a game that ended prematurely when Kibo came over and separated them. Two hours later, the Ex Orphan group parted ways with the juniors. Tusuja spent sometime comfortably feeding while leaning against a tree while Oltaiyoni took some time off to soil dust. At mud bath time the orphans were once again joined by Olare and Narok’s groups, this time accompanied by a wild female with her two calves. Later Zurura, in the company of two wild boys, checked in and joined the juniors to mud bathe. Lemoyian, while still in the water, spent most of his time trying to climb on Boromoko but when they came out Boromoko decided to tackle Lemoyian in a pushing game. Kamok and Tusuja settled for soil dusting as Orwa played with Kalama. Chemi Chemi played with Kitirua. In the afternoon, the orphans settled to browse along the cool upper Kalovoto River and in the evening, Yatta and her group showed up at the stockade and left shortly after taking enough water.
