Voi Unit  June   28, 2018 The orphan elephants enjoyed their share of copra cake this morning following their milk feed. Lasayen then played a wonderful game of hide and seek with Murit which ended when Murit conceded defeat as he was tired of the game. Lasayen then engaged Godoma in a pushing game. Mbegu mistakenly thought the two were fighting and went to play peacemaker but finding nothing was wrong, she joined Ndotto and Ngilai for a game of rolling down the red earth piles. Ndotto left the other two playing and joined Tahri and Mudanda to socialize with them and get to know them a bit more.

Lentili, Nguvu and Bada led the orphan herd out to the bush with the orphans spreading out in the browsing field to enjoy the variety of vegetation they found. They then made their way to the baobab water hole, under Godoma, Mbegu and Ndotto’s leadership, where they enjoyed their milk bottle, some water and a mud bath. Murit has proven to be a mud bathing star and has a special love for water and enjoyed wallowing. Ndii and Tahri enjoyed rolling on the red earth piles before joining their friends for the afternoon browsing session which took place close to the waterhole.
