Voi Unit  August   19, 2017 It was a wonderful morning with the orphan elephants concentrating on their supplement foods following the milk feed. The orphans browsed their way from the southern side of Msinga hill to the new baobab water hole where they had their afternoon milk bottle and fed on range cubes that had been brought for them as there is very little vegetation around Tsavo due to the ongoing drought that is being experienced in the area. The orphans are happy to get the extra supplements which they thoroughly enjoy.

Today Embu and Panda teamed up with both of them sitting on Kihari submerging her head completely in the water preventing her from shining in the mudbathing games as she was already proving to be the best swimmer of the day. Kihari screamed while she tried to free herself and the keepers had to intervene and stop Embu and Panda’s bullying behaviour.

Mashariki went and took position against the scratching baobab tree, while Naipoki headed to a different tree for the same purpose and was able to watch her friends wallowing in the mudbath while she enjoyed her scratching session. The afternoon was spent browsing on the northern foot of Msinga hill.
