Voi Unit  October   3, 2017 The earliest callers to the stockade today were Lempaute, Kivuko, Dabassa and Layoni. They were already enjoying the supplements when the stockade dependent orphans came and joined them following their morning milk bottle. They fed together for a short while before Kenia, Ndii, Kihari and Naipoki consolidated their junior orphan herd and led them towards the browsing grounds leaving the four Ex Orphans behind.

The two boys Dabassa and Layoni left a little later, leaving Lempaute and Kivuko behind. The two ladies remained at the stockade compound for more than five hours before they headed back to the park.

Out in the field Ajali separated Nguvu and Pasaka from the rest of the group and enjoyed having leadership of his small orphan herd before rejoining the main group as they made their way to the waterhole.

Mbirikani, who had been browsing high up Msinga Hill, came down and joined the group at the waterhole, arriving 10 minutes after them. She had her milk bottle and then joined the group at the mudbath where they were all enjoying mudbathing games.
