3/25/2017 - Olare and her group joined the juniors to feed on lucerne in the morning but the two groups parted ways when they were finished. Out in the bush, Kithaka and Barsilinga started their day activities by engaging each other in a pushing game but it didn't last for long. At around nine thirty in the morning, it started getting hot, making Shukuru, Narok, Olsekki, Lemoyian and Laragai feed under the trees as they tried to avoid the scorching sun. Roi led the first group to the mud bath while Naseku led the second one. None of the wild elephants paid a visit to the mud wallow while the orphans were enjoying their cooling mud bath. Kithaka and Lemoyian were the last ones to leave the mud bath after the rest of their friends had gone back to the bush to browse. In the evening, shortly before returning back to the stockades, Kauro participated in a lone soil dusting session. Kinna and Kama with all her friends visited the stockade for water with Chyulu and Wiva being the nannies to Kama. After getting enough water, the Ex Orphans left back into the park.
