Voi Unit  May   7, 2017 This morning the sky was full of heavy clouds which meant that Voi would hopefully soon be blessed with some decent rains. The orphans downed their morning milk bottle after which they enjoyed playing around in the stockade compound before heading to the browsing fields.

The orphan herd browsed on the western side of Msinga Hill while under the leadership of Naipoki and Kihari. They browsed in single file while making their way slowly to the middle waterhole where they enjoyed a quick wallow in the water.

Rorogoi was mistakenly left behind by the others as they headed back to the browsing fields for the afternoon and she had to rush to catch up with the rest of the group. Ndoria attempted to take
leadership of the orphan herd but was beaten to it by Panda who enjoyed being the boss for the afternoon.


Rorogoi gets left behind
