Voi Unit  October   21, 2017 It was a cloudy and windy morning with dark clouds spattering the sky leaving us hopeful that we would soon be getting some rain.

Arruba, Suswa, Naipoki and Lentil led the other orphan elephants towards the browsing grounds where they fed in single file on the lower flat grounds of Msinga Hill before making their way to the baobab waterhole at noon. Following their milk bottle the orphan herd assembled around the water trough for a drink before going for a wallow.

Ndii was in a naughty mood again and climbed into the water trough, with her front legs swirling the water around turning the clean water dirty; Arruba, Mbirikani, Embu and Rorogoi decided against having a drink. Arruba went to scratch her bottom on the top of the water trough while waiting for the dirt to settle so that she and her friends could quench their thirst before the orphan herd continued with days browsing activities.
