12/31/2016 - Soon after leaving the stockade, the orphans headed straight to the browsing field. Barsilinga and Garzi started their day activities by engaging each other in a pushing game, as Bongo settled to feed with Sirimon while Orwa teamed up with Kamok. Later, Barsilinga quit playing with Garzi and moved to play with Laragai as Kithaka tried to win against Lemoyian in a pushing game. Tusuja, Kauro and Naseku arrived shortly before ten o'clock in the morning from the nursery to join their three other friends. Soon after being offloaded, the three new babies were joined outside by Kamok, Oltaiyoni and Roi. Oltaiyoni exchanged greetings with Kauro as Kamok appeared totally unconcerned with her friends! Boromoko had a light pushing game with Naseku as Barsilinga tried to familiarize himself with Kauro. Olsekki moved to Naseku and tried to take grass from her mouth, something that didn't make Naseku very happy and so she moved away from Olsekki. Tusuja met with Boromoko and defended himself fiercely when Boromoko tried to push him. At the browsing field, Vuria engaged Bongo in a pushing game while Garzi played with Enkikwe. Later in the day, Bongo and Boromoko settled for a soil dusting exercise while Garzi quit playing with Enkikwe to play with Barsilinga. In the evening, the orphans passed by the mud bath where Naseku, Kauro and Tusuja really enjoyed a cooling mud bath since the heat had become too much for them. Narok kept herself so close to Naseku and kept on following her wherever she was feeding.
