Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for TURKWEL)
3/29/2017 - Sometimes in nature we find there are just born leaders, and we believe that Mbegu is one of them. She will not only protect and care for all the herd, but she also knows who is who and her day will never be complete without visiting all of the little ones. Today when she found the opportunity she visited the baby group with Jotto, Enkesha and Mteto. She went over them checking they were okay, and found that the two babies Musiara and Chumvi were missing, as they had not come out of their stockades yet. She waited around with the babies for some time, but must have lost her patience in not knowing where the other little ones were. She took off and ran back to the stockades to find them, and not even the calls of the keepers could stop her. On her way back however, she met up with them coming out and met them with joyous rumbles. She pulled them under her neck and walked them to where the other babies were in the forest. After spending some time with them all there, she walked Jotto, Enkesha and Mteto back to where the main herd was.
