6/26/2014 - The orphans had a quiet morning. They settled on lucerne and later left for browsing. In the field the orphans concentrated on feeding up to 11 o’clock until Vuria led the first group to the mud bath whilst Orwa led the second group, Laragai the third and Turkwel led the last one. At the mud bath, the juniors were joined by Half Trunk and ten other wild elephants. After the mud bath, the wild elephants headed to Imenti while the juniors headed to the slopes of the Ithumba Hill where they settled to browse for the rest of the day.
