Voi Unit  May   5, 2017 The day was cloudy with the stockade dependant orphan elephants concentrating on their usual milk and supplement feeding before heading to the browsing grounds. In the afternoon they visited the middle water hole where they had a drink before returning to their browsing activities as it was too cold for a wallow.

The afternoon’s browsing activities took place have way up Msinga Hill where Nelion found a nice tree trunk to scratch against. In the afternoon it started to drizzle while Mbirikani, Embu, and Mudanda enjoyed a scratch against some boulders. Arruba and Suswa enjoyed rolling around in the wet soil. Their games were closely watched over by Mudanda.
