Voi Unit  July   11, 2017 It was a quiet beginning to the day with the stockade dependant orphan elephants downing a morning milk bottle and proceeding to the lucerne grass and copra cake feeding area. They had a brief moment of dusting and scratching before moving towards the browsing grounds.
Soon after arriving out in the bush, they began feeding on the available grass as they slowly walked towards the northern side of Msinga Hill, where they fed in a close knit group except for Ndoria who ventured further away choosing to browse on her own, and ended up finding herself being left behind when the rest of the group proceeded to the water hole. Ndoria panicked and ran towards them, charging to catch up with them.

In the evening, Mashariki took Pasaka to a private place away from the others and lay down in a wonderful dusting game to woo him to play with her and stay as her adopted baby. Pasaka enjoyed watching Mashariki’s game before rejoining the rest of the group so that they could return to the safety of the stockades for the night.
