Voi Unit  June   21, 2018 It was a wonderful morning with the orphan elephants coming out of the stockade at the first light of day. They had their morning bottle of milk and supplements after which they made their way to the browsing grounds.

Rorogoi went into a narrow erosion trench where she enjoying some very green browse but had had difficulty getting out of the trench when she was done. She finally managed to turn around and come out the same way that she had gone in.

Laikipia was seen browsing alone on the western foot of Msinga Hill, quite far from the junior orphans, and as such they were unable to join him. Ndotto and Murit separated themselves from the others and enjoying a private browsing moment together. The two later had enjoyed a wonderful pushing game, testing their strength against one another. Ndotto won the match, and rewarded himself by riding onto Muritís back after which he enjoyed a dusting game.

Bada enjoyed sliding down from the top of an erosion trench into its gully. Arruba stood by watching but did not join in as if seemingly finding the game a little dangerous. The orphans visited the baobab water hole for their noon milk bottle but did not wallow as it was a rather cold day.
