3/31/2016 - It was a quiet morning with the orphans settling down to eat lucerne without any other Ex Orphans or wild elephants coming in to disturb them. Barsilinga settled to feed on lucerne with his back legs crossed which was a sign of complete relaxation. Bomani took some minutes to lie down on the ground to play as the rest continued with feeding. At the browsing field, Orwa and Lemoyian decided to share food from one tree. Later in the day Laragai engaged Bomani in a pushing game that saw Bomani surrender shortly after the game started. Orwa played Vuria and awhile later Teleki intervened and pushed Vuria away so he could play with Orwa. At mud bath time Laragai ran with her final bottle and dropped it close to the water after emptying its contents. Only Bongo and Narok went wallowing in the water though. Lemoyian and Shukuru opted to scratch against the nearby trees while Kithaka led the others to relax under a tree. In the afternoon, the orphans settled to browse in the area of Kanziku. Laragai, who took some private time to herself, fed a few metres away from her friends and after she had enough time on her own she returned to join her group again.
