Voi Unit  May   14, 2017 The morning was calm with the stockade dependant orphan elephants coming out of their night quarters full of energy, emptying a morning milk bottle and enjoying their supplements before playing hide and seek games in the stockade compound.

On the way to the browsing fields Pasaka heard Layoni rumbling a greeting as they passed by him. Layoni was browsing half way up Msinga Hill and Pasaka stopped to browse at the base hoping that Layoni would come down the hill and join him, which did not happen. A keeper remained with him until it was time to return to the stockades in the evening and the two arrived half an hour before the rest of the group.

In the browsing fields the orphans joined a herd of wild elephants around 9.30am, browsing with them for twenty minutes before they left for the Mzima-Mombasa water pipe line area. Nguvu followed them for a while with the Keepers calling him back to re-join the orphan elephant herd.

Orphans join a wild herd today
