Voi Unit  October   1, 2017 It was a sad beginning to the day as orphan Chedi collapsed at midnight and needed to be put on drips. Despite being attended to quickly and the keepers doing all they could, Chedi sadly died at about 5am.

Kenia’s herd welcomed Lempaute, Dabassa, Layoni and Kivuko in the morning when the four Ex Orphans joined them to feed on lucerne. They remained with them for a while before the stockade dependent herd left for the browsing fields leaving their older friends at the stockades where they remained for about two hours before heading back to the Park.

Kihari wanted to join up with Pasaka for some browsing activities but Ajali was not happy about this as Ajali wanted Pasaka for himself. Kihari did not want to get into a fight with Ajali and surrendered Pasaka to him.

The orphans visited the baobab water hole where they had a lot of fun playing mud bathing games following their milk and supplement feeding. The afternoon was spent browsing close to the waterhole.
