Voi Unit  May   1, 2017 The morning began with the stockade dependant orphan elephants emptying their morning milk bottle before enjoying some copra cake and lucerne. They then had a wonderful but brief moment playing around the stockades before making their way to the browsing grounds.

While in the browsing fields Ishaq-B tried to woo Araba away from Kenia but was not successful in her attempts and soon gave up as she saw that all her efforts were futile. The orphans made their way to the middle water pool in groups of five enjoying their milk bottle and obeying their thirst before moving to the main water hole where they circled the mudbath not wanting to get in the water as it was cloudy and cold. Embu suddenly plunged into the water for a wallow but was not able to get any of the other orphans to join her.

Later in the day, an orphan baby kudu that joined a Maasai herd of goats was rescued and taken to the Voi stockade by the Tsavo Mobile Veterinary Unit.
