Voi Unit  February   4, 2014 The ex orphans once again visited the stockade very early in the morning to get first chance at the copra. Laikipia was the first to arrive, followed closely by Thoma and after a couple of minutes, Emily with a wild bull in tow. They drank water and waited for the copra and dairy cubes to be served, but the keepers realized what was happening and delayed so that the young orphans were not pushed around by the older ex orphans. After seeing that nothing was coming their way, Emily and her group left slowly and headed west to browse. Lesanju, as if she had communicated with the keepers, came back with all the other orphans whereupon they were given their cake and cubes in peace.
A fence maintenance team in Kishushe area of Tsavo West national park alerted the KWS warden that a baby zebra, wandering without its mother, had started to follow them. The keepers with the help of the vet unit, headed off to save the tiny baby. After giving him some milk and water the tiny zebra was driven to the stockades where he met little Ngulia and Lualeni.
