7/24/2014 - The orphans left the stockade in a jovial mood. As they settled for Lucerne, six wild elephants were taking water at the stockade water trough. It was a quiet morning as the orphans settled at the Kanziku area where they browsed till mud bath time. At the mud bath, no wild elephants showed up and Mutara, Laragai, Bongo, Narok and Kanjoro had prolonged wallowing. Later, Mutara scratched on Ziwa and then started pushing him. When the orphans were soil bathing, Teleki tried to mount Vuria who had laid down to play. Vuria made a lot of noise that prompted Teleki to stop. In the evening, Yatta, Nasalot, Suguta, Lenana, Sunyei, Kibo, Makena, Sidai, Tumaren, Sabachi, Naserian, Yetu, Melia, Chyulu and three wild elephants came for water at the stockade.
