Voi Unit  August   10, 2017 The stockade dependant orphan elephants came out of their stockades to enjoy their delicious milk bottles before proceeding to the supplement feeding area. They then played hide and seek games around the stockade compound while chasing some baboons away.

The orphans made their way to the browsing grounds under the stewardship of Bada, Nguvu and Lentili. After browsing for four hours, the orphans came across Dabassa, who was in a deep slumber under a tree, and Lempaute who was guarding her friend. Dabassa heard the juniorís rumbled greeting and got to his feet. He then followed Lempaute to the stockades where they had a drink from the water trough before enjoying some copra cake and Lucerne

As the orphans continued to the mudbath they saw Kivuko browsing on the southern side of Msinga Hill but were too far away to greet him.
