Voi Unit  August   7, 2017 It was a cold and cloudy morning as the stockade dependant orphan elephants came running out of the stockades, downing their morning milk bottle before settling for some supplement feeding.
They enjoyed brief games around the stockade compound before leaving for the browsing grounds.

Lempaute, Dabassa and Layoni spent the morning browsing on the western side of Msinga Hill after which they came and joined the stockade dependent orphans at the mudbath. It was a happy interaction with Dabassa engaging Panda in a strength competition while Layoni engaged Nelion. Panda and Nelion both lost to their older friends who celebrated their victory by riding on the youngsters backs. The two herds browsed together for the rest of the afternoon and the Ex Orphans returned to the stockade with the juniors in the evening.
