5/29/2014 - For Orwa, Bomani and Teleki, this was their first morning in Ithumba. Laragai led them up to where they are served with lucerne. The three new babies seemed unperturbed and appeared to have settled in completely. Led by Laragai, the group settled to browse at kanziku area. Lucky enough for the new arrivals, the day was not too hot, as we had cloud cover almost the entire day. It was a day with moderate temperatures. At mud bath time, only Orwa, Bomani, Teleki and Laragai bathed, the rest took milk, water and then returned back to the browsing field. At eleven o’clock in the morning, Murka, Kandecha, Naisula, Tumaren, Kalama, Ishanga, Chemi Chemi, Kibo and Suguta came to see Sabachi. The group wanted to take Sabachi with them but we held him back. Even though Sabachi was willing to go and has grown stronger we wanted to be with him for one more day so as to make sure he is fine and fit to join the wild again.
