Voi Unit  July   18, 2017 This morning at the Lucerne grass feeding area where the orphan elephants had congregated, Ajali peacefully played host to a herd of visiting impala, accommodating them and giving them access to the Lucerne grass as there is hardly anything left in the fields for them to feed on. Arruba was had filled up her belly and went and leant against a rock outside her stockade until it was time to head to the browsing fields.

Soon after arriving at the browsing grounds, Kenia and Ndii stayed close to Araba in an effort to get warm as it was a cold morning. It was still rather cold when the orphans arrived at the waterhole. Mashariki was the first to enter the water and was followed a short while later by a few of the other orphans. Kihari chose to stay out of the water and instead rubbed her back against a tree trunk before joining others for a final browsing session of the day.

Ndii requesting Kenia to keep Araba in the centre
