The orphans left the Stockade in the morning without Natumiís group, the responsibility of heading the youngsters obviously having fallen to Edie, who chooses to be with them throughout the night actually in the Stockade. Natumiís group did not link up with the youngsters all day, but Uaso intercepted them as they were heading back in the evening. He then hung around the Stockades until he was joined by a wild group of elephants, who came to drink at the Stockades, and afterwards left with them.
