Voi Unit  March   23, 2017 It was another beginning of the day with the stockade dependant orphans enjoying the milk and supplement feeding in the morning. There was then some wonderful dusting and hide and seek games with Suswa grabbing Ndoria’s tail in a game. Ndoria did not like having her tail grabbed and quickly ran away from Suswa.

The orphans had a wonderful browsing morning with a report of an orphan elephant calf being seen close to the Dida Harea wind pump. The calf was seen by a tour driver who reported the situation to Nairobi. The stockade rescue team was mobilized and on arriving found that another tour driver who had seen the lonely and desperate orphan baby had reported it to the Tsavo Trust team who were in the process of rescuing the orphan elephant calf. They then headed to the Voi stockade with the two teams linking up at the stockade where the two week old calf was given its routine injection and milk by the keepers. The orphan elephant calf was later on air lifted to Nairobi together with another orphan elephant rescued from Ziwani.
