Voi Unit  July   23, 2017 This morning Panda and Kihari had a nice time lying on the ground and rolling over one another. They were having such fun that they did not notice the rest of the group leave the stockade for the browsing grounds. The two had to run to catch up with their friends who were a few miles away from the stockade.

The browsing day went well with a small wild elephant herd consisting of a cow and her calf coming to join the orphans as soon as they arrived at the water hole in the afternoon. The orphans were happy to see the wild herd and Bada greeting them warmly. Rorogoi and Ajali were braver and went up to them extending their trunks in greeting, welcoming the wild herd into the water where they all enjoyed mudbathing games. The orphans were able to learn some new mudbathing techniques from their wild friends. The wild herd left the orphans wallowing him the mudbath as they made their way to the Voi River in search of vegetation to browse on.
