Voi Unit  October   10, 2017 The morning began with the stockade dependant orphan elephants downing their delicious milk bottle in a hurry before making their way to the supplement feeding area. The four Ex Orphans in Lempaute’s herd arrived and joined them for some lucerne grass.

While enjoying the supplements Layoni engaged Nelion in a strength testing game which seemed to disturb Kenia’s herd who made the decision to leave for the browsing fields.

Kore and Tawi the orphan elands, together with Ngulia the orphan zebra were aware of the new orphan buffalo calf that had come in the night before. The three seemed to think that this calf was an orphan buffalo Jamuhuri who had sadly been killed lions. They were all excited to greet the buffalo and congregated outside his stockade in order to do so. The baby buffalo is still quite aggressive and was not very welcoming towards Kore, Tawi and Ngulia who simply wanted to become his friend. He hammered at the door chasing Kore, Tawi and Ngulia away.


Ngulia and Kore welcome the baby Buffalo
