Voi Unit  February   6, 2014 The young orphans were the first to arrive for copra and Mbirikani enjoyed eating in a safe environment. Kivuko led the middle age group managing to stop Layoni, Rombo and Dabassa joining the young ones before the rest of the orphans arrived. The orphans had a brief play at the stockade and then headed out led by Lesanju’s able assistant Sinya. First they met a wild elephant family and then Laikipia, along with his wild friend bulls. The wild bulls and the orphan bulls had fun playing pushing games with Laikipia in charge. The elephants walked together to the old big water hole, now a dust bath. Mzima, Layoni and Tassia entertained everyone and had such fun it induced most of the group to join in. Later, when Laikipia’s group had said goodbye, another small herd of wild elephants joined the orphans. Mbirikani kept her distance to avoid pushing games or perhaps a mounting by the young boys in the herd.
