Voi Unit  February   24, 2016 It was a nice, warm morning as Ndoria, Araba, Suswa, Tundani, Mudanda and Bada came out running to drink their delicious milk bottles, emptying them in a few minutes and obediently paving the way for the other orphans behind them to come for their milk. There were some fantastic socializing games in the stockade compound before Embu took the lead of taking them towards the browsing grounds. Here the orphans settled to browse in single file with Mudanda and Bada attaching themselves with Ndii to browse.

The orphans then visited the middle water hole at noon where they had a lot of fun in some mud bathing games. Elkerama swam in the central part of the water pool, shining as he played in the plentiful water. Nelion came in to join Elkerama as Panda went to lie on the edge of the water pool, avoiding the bathing competition with the others. Ndii saw Pandaís tricks and plunged into the water to encourage her to a huge bathing competition. Panda left and moved to take a bath on the furthest side away from Ndii.

The rest of the browsing day went on perfectly well with Lesanju, Lempaute, Kivuko, Layoni, Sinya and Mzima coming to the stockade today in the evening, after going missing for the last two days. They later left the stockade around midnight for the park.
