Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  July   29, 2017 It was extremely cold this morning and Murera and Mwashoti were very stiff when they came out of their stockades. The rest of the orphans ran to the lucerne feeding area while Murera and Mwashoti could only slowly walk there to join them. The keepers let the two have a bit more time at the lucerne piles before walking them around so that they could warm up and be able to walk with more ease allowing them to keep up with the rest of the group.

When the orphans got to the forest they split into groups with the some of the boys following Jasiri and Ziwa while the remaining babies followed Lima Lima and Zongoloni with Sonje and Murera browsing together. The orphans came running to the bottle feeding area from different directions today leaving the keepers guessing as to which direction they would appear from. Zongoloni and Jasiri arrived at the milk bottles just ahead of Mwashoti and Alamaya who came running in behind them. Ngasha and Ziwa went straight to the dustbath while the rest of the orphans went to test the mud bath waters but found them too cold for a wallow. They therefore all had a dustbath after which they returned to the forest for the afternoons browsing activities.
