Voi Unit  July   27, 2017 The morning was wonderful with Lempaute, Dabassa and Layoni paying the orphans another visit. After a peaceful supplement feeding, Dabassa looked at Panda and noticed that she had grown taller than him, and her tusks were also little longer than his. He engaged her in strength testing game to ascertain that he was still stronger that she was. Their game prompted some of the others to do the same with Nelion taking on Ishaq-B while Bada engaged Tundani. The Ex Orphans then followed the juniors towards the browsing grounds, with Kenia, Ndii, Kihari and Naipoki leading the others all round Msinga Hill in an effort to get the Ex Orphans to leave their group.

After a wonderful noon mud bath, Lentili and Arruba positioned themselves strategically on the walls to enjoy their dusting games. Pasaka was busy throwing huge chunks of red soil onto his back while Tundani lay down and rolled down the steep sides of the dusting soil. The rest of the day was spent browsing close to the big water hole with Rorogoi and Suswa enjoying a lead of the orphan herd back to the stockades in the evening.
