7/27/2015 - Today was a hot day and the orphans quickly finished their milk bottles at the 11am public showing before running into the mud bath to cool down. Mbegu, Dupotto, Roi and young Rapa were the first ones into the mud. Ngilai enjoyed his mudbath at the shallower end to avoid getting stuck in the deeper part where the others were. However when more of the orphans joined in the mud became quite thick and there wasn’t very much space left. Soon Ngilai was struggling to stand up without falling over and he started to shout as his trunk kept getting covered in mud. The lovely Kamok, Mbegu and Oltaiyoni waded towards him and Mbegu, always fond and caring towards the younger orphans, supported the head and neck of Ngilai with her foreleg. Oltaiyoni pushed Ngilai from the back and together they managed to help Ngilai walk out of the mudbath, to the applause of the audience watching in the public showing!
