Voi Unit  February   14, 2014 Emily’s group, who have been around for several weeks now, arrived once again to check on the orphans and see if there was any copra left on the ground. When Lesanju saw them she quickly led the orphans away, fearing the older ones intention was to take the young family members from her group. Mzima, Tassia, Layoni and Dabassa were left behind still accepting the greetings from the ex-orphans and when Lesanju realized they were missing she returned to the stockade to get them. She stood on the road and rumbled. Mzima was the first to hear and he started running towards her, his three friends saw him running away and quickly followed suite. After regrouping her babies, Lesanju brought up the rear to make sure that no one returned to Emily’s group. They caught up with the others on the slopes of Msinga hill and browsed quietly until meeting again with yesterday’s wild friendly elephants. Rumbles of joy and trumpets filled the air as they mingled. Wasessa and Lempaute decided to play with the tiny wild calves in the herd. Once again the two groups parted ways at around noon when the orphans headed to the water hole to drink and wallow. Rombo out did all the others with his wonderful wallowing and rolling in the mud skills.
