Voi Unit  October   25, 2017 The morning started with the stockade dependant orphan elephants joining the four Ex Orphans for the supplement feeding after emptying their morning milk bottle. There was some brief rock scratching games around the compound with Nguvu thoroughly enjoying a scratch against a rock boulder.

Light rain fell as the orphans made their way to the browsing fields and they all enjoyed browsing on the wet grass they found there. Once at the foot of Msinga Hill, Lentili and Embu seemed to be in consultation as to the best place to spend the morning feeding. Once reaching an agreement the two led the group to the top of Msinga Hill where they feasted on the green grass and branches that they found there.

Kenia, Suswa and Panda seemed to be in a lazy mood today as they moved slowly up the hill, falling behind the rest of the group. Panda tried to take a short cut to her friends passing through a trench while Kenia and Suswa took the longer way around, avoiding the slippery area that Panda had passed through.
The orphans did not come down for their noon milk bottle, choosing to continue with their browsing activities until it was time to return to the safety of the stockades for the night. Once back they enjoyed their evening milk bottle, supplements and grewia branches.
