Voi Unit  July   14, 2017 The morning began with the usual stockade activities of milk and supplement feeding followed by socializing games before the orphans headed to the browsing grounds. Today the orphans made their way to the eastern side of the stockade where they browsed for a while before going to the northern side for a short spell.

The orphan herd made their way to the midday milk feed and mudbath in groups of five and once all the group had arrived and had their milk they were joined by Kivuko and Lempaute. July is the cold month in Voi and both Lempaute and Kivuko were looking very grey, an indication that they had not had a mudbath in a few days. Kivuko went and tried to push Mbirikani into the water in an effort to get the orphans into a mudbathing mood but no one wanted to enter the water. Ajali led his friend Pasaka for a partial mud bath and the two were joined briefly by Lempaute.
Mbirikani managed to get away from Kivuko and led the orphans away from the mudbath for the afternoons browsing session joined by the two Ex Orphans who left an hour later for the Voi River.
