Since the Park is still green, there were very few wild elephants in the dry season range of the Voi River and its environs, and hence Malaika's group made contact with wild elephants only on three occasions, on the 7th, again on the 13th when the orphans joined 4 wild elephants and fed together and again on the 25th, when they again met up with 4 wild elephants, two the size of Malaika, l Emily's size and 1 the size of Mweiga.

On the 1st Emily met up with Malaika's group below the Research Centre and they fed together until 9.30 a.m. when Malaika's group left. After mudbath Imenti chased a herd of impala away and at 6.45 p.m. Malaika returned to the Stockade, lay down writhing as though in, pain. We noticed that she had runny stools with worms. She returned to the Stockade at midnight and left again just before 6 a.m.
