Voi Unit  May   16, 2013 The Ex Orphans again came to the Stockades after the Youngsters had already left. Mweya was first to arrive and immediately went in search of Panda and Shimba, but failed to locate them. She then returned to the compound where Ex Orphan Edie and her calf, Ella, along with Icholta and Lolokwe were busy finishing off the leftover Copra cake. They received a bonus of a fresh hand-out from the Keepers. Lolokwe engaged Sweet Sally in a Pushing Game after which Big Boy Lolokwe went to guard little Ella as she drank from the Stockade trough since Nannies Seraa and Thoma were busy browsing along the fenceline. The Ex Orphans then went in search of the Juniors, recruiting two wild teenaged boys into their herd en route, and meeting up with the Juniors at the Big Waterhole. Lolokwe barred the two wild Attachments from going into the waterhole with the Youngsters. They had to wait until both the Ex Orphans and the Juniors had left! As the Juniors were walking off, Seraa remained with them for a while before returning to catch up with Emily’s herd again, who were heading to the Voi River.
