1/28/2016 - During the night a few wild elephants came to the stockades and had a drink water from the water trough leaving their dung droppings in the area. When Ziwa and Faraja caught the scent of the wild elephants dung in the morning they decided to try and see if they could catch up with their wild friends who were headed towards the Chyulu hills National Park. Murera and Sonje with the rest of the babies were left behind and it was not long before Faraja started to rumble when he realized that the two of them were on their own and that if they went too far afield they risked missing their milk feed. Murera also started to rumble and called the two youngsters to return to the group as she was worried that the wild elephants may manage to draw the two boys into their group taking them away from the Nursery herd.
