Voi Unit  August   14, 2017 The orphans came running out of their stockades for their morning bottle of milk. They then proceeded to the supplement area where they enjoyed feeding on copra cake, range cubes and Lucerne grass, before making their way to the western side of Msinga Hill. The orphans knew that there was not much browse on the lower sides of the hill and decided to move further uphill to see what they could find. Mbirikani and Nelion who were leading, moved higher than the rest and rejoined them when it was time to head to the waterhole.

Layoni visited the stockade alone an hour after the juniors had left for the field. He quenched his thirst at the stockade water trough and enjoyed some supplement foods before he left for the park.

In the afternoon, Embu separated herself from the group for some quiet browsing time and a scratching session against a tree trunk. She rejoined the orphan herd about half an hour later. Nguvu enjoyed browsing with Naipoki and Ishaq-B until Rorogoi signaled that it was time to return to the stockades.
