Voi Unit  July   19, 2017 The morning was calm with the stockade dependant orphan elephants sticking with their milk and supplement feeding before assembling for a drink around the stockade water trough. Kenia climbed onto the rock close to the water hole and stood there overlooking her dependant orphan herd. While up there she noticed that Ndii was taking advantage of her absence to get close to Araba and she quickly came down to claim her baby.

The orphans made their way to the browsing grounds while the four ex-orphans Kivuko, Layoni, Lempaute, and Dabassa visited the stockade later to quench their thirst and enjoy some Lucerne grass. The four then left the stockade for the browsing field but did not meet up with the babies.

After a wonderful noon mud bath, Suswa enjoyed scratching and rubbing against a tree trunk, with Naipoki and Ndoria waiting patiently for a turn to do the same. The rest of the afternoon was spent browsing around the waterhole.
