Voi Unit  March   27, 2017 It was a beautiful beginning of the day with Layoni, who spent the previous night browsing on Msinga Hill, being the earliest caller at the stockade. He joined the stockade dependant orphan elephants for the supplement feeding before leaving with them for the browsing grounds.

This is the second day that Layoni has spent the whole day with Kenia’s dependent herd. Kenia, Ndii, Naipoki and Kihari looked more settled as Layoni kept a low profile, leaving the decisions as to what direction to browse in to be made by the orphan group.

They spent the morning browsing peacefully before visiting the middle water hole that afternoon where they had a wonderful mud bath. Nguvu went to play with little Araba in the water with Kenia coming in at high speed, chasing him out of the water, keeping her adopted baby Araba by her side.

On returning to the stockade in the evening, Layoni interacted with Rombo, Wasessa, and Lempaute who had come to the stockade an hour earlier. Other members of Emily’s herd, whom Wasessa and Rombo were a part of, were not seen.
