Voi Unit  August   30, 2017 This morning Ndoria positioned herself for a scratching session against a big rock boulder at the stockade, with Nguvu waiting nearby so that he could enjoy the same when she was done. Today the orphan herd went up Msinga hill where they settled to browse for the morning.

Layoni and Dabassa came to the stockade two hours after the stockade dependant orphan elephants had left for the field. Lempaute and Kivuko also visited after the two boys had left. The all enjoyed some supplement foods and a drink of water before heading back to the park.

In a wonderful noon mud bath, Ishaq-B lay down and extended her trunk in invitation to Naipoki as she wanted her to join her for some diving games. Naipoki did not seem keen on wallowing and instead enjoyed scratching against the trunk of a baobab tree. After a brief mudbath the group browsed around the area until it was time to return to the stockades for the night.
