Voi Unit  August   17, 2017 It was a fantastic beginning of the day with the stockade dependant orphan elephants playing happily around the stockade compound after their milk and supplement feeding. They then browsed their way to the eastern side of Msinga hill, moving slowly around to the northern side.

Today the orphan elephants visited the newly built baobab water trough which has a fantastic view of the Yatta plateau. It is a private and beautiful bushy water hole and trough which the orphan elephants loved and they had a lot of fun playing there. Ndii and Panda lay down next to the beautiful new water trough and had a lovely time rolling around in the dirt. There were so many different games taking place with Mbirikani, Mashariki, Rorogoi and Mudanda all securing a perfect scratching spot against a thick baobab tree. Kenia and Suswa enjoyed scratching against some big tree trunks of which there were many to choose from. Araba and Ishaq-B enjoyed rubbing their bottoms against the natural rocks around the trough while Ndoria admired Bada’s swimming games.

Kivuko and Layoni visited the stockade in the afternoon, remaining there for about two hours before heading back to the park.


Ajali hoping to join Lempaute in browsing
