Voi Unit  July   31, 2017 The stockade dependant orphan elephants exited their stockade in a happy mood and went straight for their milk bottle after which they enjoyed some copra cake and Lucerne grass. Ishaq-B managed to find a low lying acacia branch and enjoyed feeding on the green twigs. Tundani tried to mimic mount her nearly knocking Ishaq-B into the acacia thorns which angered Ishaq-B no end. She turned to face Tundani and engaged her in a head on fight which lasted until the orphan herd began making their way to the browsing fields. Tundani made sure to stay at the back of the group so as to avoid incurring any more of Ishaq-Bís wrath.

The orphans visited the middle water hole and had a lot of fun playing mud bathing games. When they were done wallowing they made their way to the big waterhole and browsed around that area for the rest of the day before returning to the stockades for the night.
