Voi Unit  October   18, 2017 It was a wonderful beginning to the day as Lempaute, Dabassa, Layoni, and Kivuko assembled behind the stockade dependant orphan elephants, watching them enjoy their morning milk bottle waiting for them to finish so that they could all enjoy the supplements together. Dabassa became a little impatient and attempted to break through the juniors to demand their milk. Suswa and Mudanda did a good job of blocking him, with their bottoms, preventing him from doing so.

Following the Lucerne grass pellet and range cube feeding they enjoyed playing some brief games around the stockade compound. Ndii took Panda to task in a tough wrestling match, with Layoni, who had not been invited to join them, finding his way into the game. He took over from Ndii and engaged Panda in a wrestling match.

The four Ex Orphans followed Kenia's herd to the browsing grounds, leaving them a short while later for the middle waterhole where they enjoyed a mudbath before making their way to the Voi River area.

Kenia’s herd visited the baobab water hole and had a wonderful drinking and bathing moment after which they spent the afternoon browsing around the area.
