Voi Unit  May   25, 2017 The orphans exited their night quarters in a happy mood trumpeting loudly as they made their way to their morning milk bottle after which they settled to enjoy some supplements before enjoying a game of hide and seek around the stockade compound.

Once out in the browsing grounds, Bada and Ajali hung behind the rest of the group as they felt the others were browsing too quickly. The two later caught up with the group as they made their way to the waterhole. Embu and Panda kept towards the back of the group and ended up a short distance in front of Bada and Ajali.

The orphans had a wonderful mudbath with Ndoria engaging Ajali in a strength testing game. Ajali has become quite strong and Ndoria had hard time getting Ajali to concede any ground and in the end gave up the game as she could not get Ajali to move even an inch.

Mudanda seemed to enjoy lying on the ground, tossing her trunk side by side throwing soil particles towards the others who were quick to move away from Mudanda as they did not want to get any soil in their eyes. This brought an end to the mudbathing activities for the day and the orphans returned to the browsing fields for the afternoon.
