In the morning Tassia and Taveta had a small fight which was brought to an end by Kenia who intervened and separated the two. They then followed the others to the browsing field where they settled in for the morning. During the mud bath time, the orphans enjoyed wallowing, rolling and splashing the water before heading back out to feed.

The orphans grabbed a milk bottle before heading out for the day. They reached the mudbath in the afternoon where Panda, Ishaq-B and Mudanda were the masters of the wallowing games which were watched closely by Lesanju, Mzima and Kenia.

Icholta and Lolokwe arrived at the stockade just as the orphans were finishing their morning bottle of milk. The young ones in Lesanju and Keniaís groups got excited and joined them for some games. Icholta played a wrestling match with Lempaute while Lolokwe settled for Mzima and Taveta together. The two ex-orphans joined the youngsters for a morning session before parting ways.

On reaching the water hole at noon, Kihari and Ishaq-B dove in rolling around and submerging themselves completely in the water. Their games attracted Ndii and Kenia who were quick to join them. Ndii later introduced a game of scratching on the banks of the water hole. In the evening Emilyís group visited the stockades for a drink at the water trough. Mweya and Morani enjoyed lying and rolling on the ground together followed by Morani trying to mount her which brought the game to an abrupt halt.

It was a nice day with the orphans leaving the stockade early for the browsing fields where they separated into two groups with Kenia taking Ndii, Taveta, Naipoki, Kihari, Dabassa and Layoni browsing with her meeting up with the rest of the orphans on the way to the noon mud bath. Rombo had a quick wallow while Wasessa, Mudanda, Taveta and Kivuko stood on the edge of the water watching him. Mbirikani enjoyed leading the way home in the evening.
