Voi Unit  February   19, 2014 After the orphans left Lolokwe led the ex-orphans to the stockade to look for left over copra cake. There was nothing left so Laikipia, Emily, Mweya and Ndara walked back and forth trying in vain to catch the keepersí attention. After being paid no attention Mweya led the other ex-orphans over to the lucene left behind by the orphans and they all settled down and munched happily.
It was rather cool so the orphans waited until around 2pm to visit the mud hole. They were led in by Ishaq B, Naipoki and Kihari who wallowed quickly and then left on the opposite side and started rolling in the warm dry red soil to dry their bodies. Naipoki ended up wallowing twice as she miscalculated the distance to the edge of the pool and in a split second found herself head over heels in the water. She clambered out drenched in thick mud and had to start over again soil dusting. After this minor incident the orphans scratched on the trees near the water hole area before going in the shade to rest.
