Voi Unit  August   11, 2017 It was a wonderful beginning to the day with plenty of bird songs as the orphans dust bathed and played games of hide and seek around the stockade compound before they made their way out to the bush. The orphans walked and had a break from browsing on the northern foot of Msinga Hill. Once they settled there, Ajali consolidated his small herd of Nguvu and Pasaka in one area so that they could browse together a short distance away from the rest of the group.

When the orphans arrived at the mudbath they had their noon milk bottle and then drank water from the half drum barrels. As it was too cold for a mudbath Kihari tired to introduce a dusting game by lying down in the soil but no one came to join her as they were already on their way back to the browsing fields.

Later in the afternoon, Kivuko was seen walking towards the Voi River. He was by himself with Lempaute, Layoni and Dabassa nowhere in sight.
