Most Recent Keeper's Diary Entry: (view all the latest entries for MAKENA)
8/16/2016 - Madiba, Ololoo and a wild elephant joined the juniors in the morning immediately after the orphans settled for lucerne. A while later, Mulika and Yatta’s groups in the company of several wild elephants arrived for water. Some of the Ex Orphans like Wendi, Mulika, Challa, Lualeni, Sunyei, Makena, Lenana, Chyulu and Loijuk invaded the juniors who were feeding, which made them withdraw from the venue. Garzi kept himself busy by scratching on the acacia tree while Enkikwe settled to feed on the fallen acacia pods. Orwa, Narok and Bomani surrounded Wiva as each tried to play with the baby. Sokotei had an opportunity to interact with Wiva as she tried to push him. Sokotei didn't take Wiva seriously but ignored her and left to drink water. Orwa threw a back kick when Wiva was passing behind him. The kick landed on Wiva but she didn't complain as she continued with her games and interacting with the orphans. Orwa then walked to play with Kithaka as Teleki challenged a junior wild elephant, while Vuria played with Makena. At the browsing field, Barsilinga engaged Garzi in a pushing game that didn't last for long.
