Voi Unit  July   15, 2017 It was a wonderful beginning to the day with the stockade dependant orphan elephants running out of their night quarters for their morning milk bottle. After the supplement feeding the orphans were in a playful mood and they ran around the compound with their heads held high and their ears spread wide as they played hide and seek games. Once they had worked up a thirst they assembled around the stockade water trough for a drink where Ndii placed her trunk softly onto Nguvuís giving him some attention. Ishaq-B copied what Ndii was doing and placed her trunk onto Tudaniís back. As Tundani is taller than Ishaq-B it looked a bit awkward. .

Most of the orphan herd are slowly being weaned off the midnight milk bottle and are instead provided with extra grewia and Lucerne grass to last them the night. Only Pasaka and Embu continue to be given a midnight milk bottle.
