Voi Unit  October   17, 2017 It was a good beginning to the day as the stockade dependant orphan elephants ran out of their night pens, emptying a morning milk bottle before settling to feed on the supplements that had been put out for them by their keepers.

The stockade dependant orphan elephants browsed their way to the eastern side of Msinga Hill under the stewardship of Mbirikani and Nelion. They slowly made their way down hill arriving at the baobab water hole at noon where they enjoyed their afternoon milk bottle, range cubes and Lucerne grass.

Ndii had fun playing a wonderful game of sliding down from the walls of the mud bath into the waterhole then coming out of the water and doing the same thing over again. Arruba was rolling around in the water which seemed to make Mbirikani jealous and resulted in her chasing Arruba out of the wallow. While Nguvu was lying down at the dustbath Mashariki went over and sat on his stomach preventing him from further enjoying any dust bathing games. The rest of the afternoon was spent browsing close to the waterhole.

Tundani and Ajali in deep communication
