Voi Unit  July   24, 2017 This morning the orphan herd assembled around the stockade water trough for a drink after their milk and lucerne grass feeding and quenched their thirst before heading towards the western side of the stockade for the morning browsing session. After two hours of un-disturbed browsing, a wild elephant cow and her tiny calf came and got Pasaka and three walked towards the northern side of Msinga Hill. The stopped along the way to allow the calf to suckle milk from her mother while Pasaka watched the milk-feeding calf. The keepers had to call and woo Pasaka back to the orphan herd as he is still milk dependant and in the ongoing dry season he still needs to build up his strength and condition.

Layoni came and joined the babies in the browsing field and headed straight for Panda engaging her in a strength testing wresting match. Layoni spent three more hours browsing with the juniors before heading towards the Voi River where his friends were believed to be browsing.
