Voi Unit  February   12, 2014 The orphans headed towards the hill on the east of the pack today. Sinya, Wasessa, Dabassa and a few other orphans led the way up the hill where they choose to browse for the whole morning. Kenia, Lesanju, Tassia, Panda and Rombo decided to browse at the lower slopes of the hill leaving those good mountain climbers to continue going up. The ex-orphans took the same route as the orphans, but instead of climbing the hill they took a short cut along the slope to meet the orphans at the foot of the hill on the other side. The two groups split at noon when the orphans went to the water hole and Emily’s group went to drink at the breathers along Mzima springs water pipe line. The orphans did not spend long at the waterhole and by 4pm they were ready to go home, queuing near the fence. Naipoki, gradually taking over the leadership of the youngest group, standing at the front of the line waiting for the go ahead from the keepers.
