Voi Unit  October   12, 2017 The morning started with Lempaute, Kivuko, Dabassa and Layoni coming to the stockade where they stood waiting for the juniors to finish drinking their milk before they joined them for the supplement feeding.

Lempaute went to greet Araba who thought that Lempaute wanted to steal his milk and he started screaming loudly in protest which brought Ndii, Kihari, Naipoki and Ishaq-B charging up to see what the problem was. When Lempaute saw them coming she quickly moved away as she did not want any trouble.

After the supplement feeding, Layoni and Dabassa went and rolled around in the red soil pile. Their game caught the attention of Ishaq-B, Mudanda, Rorogoi, Mbirikani and Panda who came up and stood in a line watching their older friends. Dabassa got up from the soil and engaged Panda in a strength testing game scattering the rest of the spectators in the process.

After the babies had left the stockade compound a report was received from a tour guide of an elephant calf stuck in water in the pipeline area. Both the stockade keepers and the Veterinary team were mobilized and upon arrival we found the calf’s mother doing her best to free her calf which she was finally successful in doing, and the team was able to watch the calf being reunited with its mother.
