Voi Unit  February   20, 2014 This was the quietest day so far, possibly because of the cool weather. Msinga hill, where the orphans usually go, was covered by mist and the orphans seemed afraid to go there. They browsed on the open grassland, not venturing far and staying close to the keepers. Silence even continued until just before they returned to the stockades in the evening when Tassia and Layoni decided to start a charging game to break the gloomy mood. They ran and chased around trumpeting, it really worked as Dabassa, Rombo, Taveta and Mzima joined in and before everyone knew it was time to return to the stockades.
