Voi Unit  February   26, 2017 The morning was perfect with the stockade dependant orphan elephants concentrating on their milk and supplement foods before heading to the browsing grounds. Ishaq-B took charge of leading the group to the browsing grounds. Kenia kept close browsing ties with her adopted baby Araba.

Later in the day Naipoki attempted to lead the rest of the orphan elephants up Msinga Hill but was met with some resistance by the rest who were happy to browse at the bottom of the hill and chose to remain where they were.

Three hours later Laikipia came walking alone past the stockade dependant orphan elephants as he made his way towards the water pipe line area. Ndoria and Bada became ambitious and tried to follow him but were not able to catch up with him in order to do so and as such they returned to their group. A short while later Rombo came past following Laikipia. He did not interact with the juniors as he was focused on catching up with his older friend.
