Voi Unit  May   13, 2013 The Juniors enjoyed browsing along the fenceline today until about 8 a.m. after which they posed for a photo session, Lempaute stretching her trunk to the camera, Wasessa spreading her ears wide open to boost her size, while Kenia stood majestically and Lesanju coiled her trunk! They then climbed the hill where they browsed for the rest of the day, a light shower anchoring them up there, so that they even missed coming down for their milk at noon. Back at the Stockades Ex Orphans Mweya, Sweet Sally and Lolokwe turned up to see how Shimba was doing, aware of the time that Shimba always appears at the compound for his noon milk. The three Ex Orphans remained with Shimba, eager to coax him to come away with them, but Shimba went back to his Stockade where soft greens were provided for him, along with a pile of dry earth to dust himself. Sally and Mweya watched him closely as he walked away, before Mweya went to scratch against a rock and Sally went to join Panda who was inside the fence. She reached her trunk through the electric wire to try and persuade Panda to come and join her, but Panda was having none of it. The two Ex Orphans then left heading westwards presumably to join up again with Emily’s main Ex Orphan herd. Since there were many wild elephant herds in the area, along with a wild couple busy mating at the base, Lesanju and the Juniors chose to remain up the hill.
