At dawn unexpected visitors arrived at the stockade. The keepers were delighted to see that it was Lissa and Mpenzi with their calves. Shimba, Mzima, Shira and Kenia were the first to finish their milk and headed to greet the waiting visitors. Lissa led the orphans up Msinga Hill to feed. There was plenty of socializing and game playing between the orphans and the wild calves. A little while after the group left the stockades two big wild bulls, who seemed to be following Lissa’s scent, passed by heading in the direction taken by the orphans. Lissa and her entourage remained with the orphans until noon when they parted ways and headed off in search of the wild bulls.
