Voi Unit  August   16, 2017 The morning was good with the stockade dependant orphan elephants leaving the stockade after the milk and supplement feeding. Bada who was in the lead as they browsed their way up Msinga hill made it all the way to the peak while the rest of the group stopped half way up. After browsing for four hours, Lempaute was seen without the other three members of her herd. Ajali and Mudanda watched her movements, wanting to join her but Lempaute seemed to be in a rush so they were not able to catch up with her.

In the afternoon an orphan baby lesser kudu was brought to the stockade by the Kenya Wildlife service rangers. It had been rescued by a school boy in Chakaora close to Galana ranch. The boy had looked after the orphan baby for about a week before handing the orphan over to the rangers who in turn brought her to the Voi stockades. The orphan baby kudu was then moved to Kaluku where she can interact with the other orphan kudus being raised there.
