Voi Unit  August   20, 2017 This morning the orphan elephants played happily at the stockade compound following the milk and supplement feeding. Lentili, Mashariki and Mudanda then took the lead of the others to the browsing fields and led them half way up the eastern side of Msinga hill where they spent the morning feeding until it was time to make their way to the baobab waterhole.

Ajali settled with his adopted baby Pasaka and the two enjoyed their piles of range cubes before joining the rest who were also feeding as they moved towards the water hole. Ajali who doesn’t love mudbathing was today seen plunging into the water and enjoying wallowing with the rest of his friends. Soon after bathing, Suswa took the lead of the group in an attempt to lead them further down the northern side of the stockade but no one followed her as they were following Kenia and Lentili who were heading up the hill where there is better browse than the lower flat areas. Rorogoi and Mudanda led the group home in the evening.
