Voi Unit  October   13, 2017 It was a wonderful beginning to the day as the stockade dependant orphan elephants interacted with Lempaute, Kivuko, Dabassa and Layoni following the milk and supplement feeding. There were some brief games with Dabassa and Nelion engaged in a strength testing game which lasted a while. Lentili came over to see if she could help Nelion win but instead managed to put an end to their game and they all followed the rest of the orphan herd who were going out to the browsing grounds. Dabassa and Layoni stopped to browse on the foot of Msinga Hill while the juniors headed to their browsing grounds.

In the afternoon, during a monitoring patrol the keepers saw Ajali and Nguvu who had left with a wild group of about 8 elephants on the 5th of the month. The two were looking thinner and the team was able to separate them from the wild elephants and get them to rejoin the orphan herd. They were welcomed back with loud trumpeting as their friends kept touching them with their trunks greeting them warmly.
