8/30/2015 - The ex-orphans, the partially independent group and few wild elephants were at stockade compound in the morning. The former orphans and the partially independent group shared lucerne with the orphans. Orwa, as is his way when the seniors are around, invited Kalama into a strength testing game. Kalama, being a girl, fought Orwa hard showing him that he should not be taking girls lightly simply because he is a boy. Orwa surrendered and walked over to Melia and tried to challenge her. It appears he had not learnt his lesson as Melia humiliated Orwa by knocking him out of the way. Bomani fed close to Sunyei and from time to time Sunyei would stretch her trunk towards his mouth. Olare lay down to play so Kibo, who was standing close by, took advantage and mounted her. Olare managed to disengage herself from Kibo though and walk over to Bomani where she started giving him a few pushing lessons. Chyulu baby-sat Lemoyian right up until it was time to leave for browsing.
