Voi Unit  August   23, 2017 The morning was good with the orphan elephants playing scratching games against the rocks and soil dusting after which they enjoyed some Lucerne grass before leaving for the browsing fields. Under Kihari and Naipokiís leadership the orphans browsed their way from the southern side of Msinga hill to the western side. Ajali and Pasaka enjoyed some range cubes while the others had milk after which they joined the two for some of the tasty supplements.

On arriving at the new baobab water hole, the orphans were welcomed by a very big wild elephant bull that had quenched his thirst and was taking refuge from the scorching sun under a big acacia tree. After a wonderful greeting with him, the orphans went for a drink of water from the newly built water trough after which they dove in the waterhole. Mbirikani decided to keep the bull company rejoining her group when they left the mudbath to head back to the browsing grounds.
