Kibwezi Forest/Umani Springs Unit  July   31, 2017 During the night Ziwa, Faraja and Ngasha had been busy trying to ascertain where the noise that they were hearing was coming from while Zongoloni and Jarsiri pushed at their gates as did Murera and Sonje. The keepers had to come out of their tents to see what the fuss was about and found that it was some hyenas making a lot of noise which was scaring the orphans. The keepers went back to bed while Murera and Sonje stood looking at Mwashoti to see if he would settle before they themselves could relax and get some rest.

When the orphans exited their quarters in the morning, following a restless night due to the hyenas, Alamaya led them all to their milk bottles after which they all enjoyed some lucerne and then made their way to theforest avoiding the water springs area where thehyenas werebelieved to have been during the night.
