Voi Unit  August   24, 2017 The orphans exited their stockades to the sound of the singing birds. Following their milk and supplement feed they enjoyed some copra cake, lucerne grass and pellets. Lempaute, Dabassa, Layoni and Kivuko came to the stockade soon after the juniors had left missing them by a hair.
The four went to drink from the stockade trough before feeding on supplements. They left the stockades two hours after they had arrived.

The orphans spread out to browse on the eastern side of Msinga hill coming for their noon milk bottle under Mbirikani, Mudanda and Bada’s leadership. The first group of five orphan elephants ran towards the baobab tree water hole for their milk bottle as the keepers held the second group back letting them go once the first group was done. Arruba went and grabbed Suswa’s ear, suckling it as she waited to be called for her milk.

When browsing after the noon mud bath, Mashariki became uncomfortable when Ndoria kept following her from behind and eventually turned to chase Ndoria away, suspecting that Ndoria was wanting to bite her tail and she wanted none of that.
