Voi Unit  August   22, 2017 The stockade dependant orphan elephants came running out of their night quarters and quickly downed their morning milk bottle before settling to enjoy the supplements that had been put out for them. There were some brief hide and seek games around the stockade compound before the group headed to the browsing grounds.

One hour after they had left Lempaute and Kivuko followed closely by Bada and Layoni came to the stockade to enjoy Lucerne and copra cake. The four relaxed around the stockade compound for more than two hours before heading back to the park.

After a peaceful milk feeding session at noon, Ajali took her adopted baby Pasaka for some private feeding time away from the others after which the group browsed their way to the middle waterhole arriving a little after 2pm. They interacted with a visiting wild elephant herd that was enjoying a drink of water. Embu plunged into the water for a swim while the rest of the group watched and the wild herd sprayed water onto their bodies after which they left for the Voi river circuit.
