Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for KITIRUA)
5/28/2014 - Olare, Ishanga, Naisula, Kalama and Kitirua spent the night just outside the stockade. In the morning, they checked on Sabachi and joined the juniors on lucerne as well as headed to browse alongside the orphans later in the morning. Chemi Chemi, Kibo, Melia, Suguta, Tumaren and Kandecha also reported at the stockade and soon after taking water, went to join the juniors. Teleki, Bomani and Orwa journeyed down from Nairobi to their new home at Ithumba today. Amazingly enough Suguta group seemed to know that something exciting was about to happen and they hung around to wait for the new babies to arrive. They escorted the babies to the browsing field then disappeared to undisclosed location leaving Kalama, Olare and Naisula behind. Teleki, Bomani and Orwa were so relaxed, such that one wouldn’t know that they had only just arrived in Tsavo! Mutara sniffed them from time to time while Kainuk had a pushing game with Bomani and later Teleki. Shukuru was not friendly to Teleki as she pushed him twice!
