Voi Unit  August   21, 2017 It was cold morning with light rain showers as the orphans exited their stockades and settled to enjoy their morning milk bottle and supplements before heading to the browsing grounds. Kenia kept close browsing ties with her adopted baby Araba, while Pasaka constantly followed Ajali.

The orphans visited the new baobab tree water hole and drank from the newly constructed water trough but did not enter the mudbath as it was a cold day. In the afternoon, while the stockade dependant orphan elephants were busy browsing on the northern foot of Msinga hill, Lempaute, Dabassa and Kivuko joined them for a spell. Dabassa went straight to Panda and engaged her in a strength testing match while Kivuko spent the time browsing with Suswa before all three of them headed to the stockade where they had a drink from the water hole before enjoying some Lucerne.
