2/4/2015 - Today Wasessa took all three young orphans, Bada, Mudanda and Ndoria, under her wing as they went to browse. She tried to share her love and attention equally between them, but Bada became jealous of the others and remained a little aloof. Wasessa kept touching them all with her trunk to reassure them of her love and attention. Later in the day the three babies left Wasessa behind as they headed into the water hole to bathe before she was ready. She joined them but not quickly enough to prevent Lempaute stealing Ndoria for mud bathing games. The females simply love the company of the little ones and are so tender and caring with them. Ndoria is very settled, despite being the new baby in the group, she is really happy in her new surroundings and with her new friends. After bathing the orphans went to the eastern side of Msinga Hill to browse for the rest of the day. Mbirikani tried to persuade them to go up the hill, but they were very happy staying where they were.
