Voi Unit  July   5, 2017 The orphans enjoyed their morning milk bottle and supplement feeding before walking to the browsing grounds. Soon after the stockade dependant babies reached the western foot of Msinga Hill, Layoni and Lempaute, who were browsing half way up, came down in a rush to join them. Kenia, Kihari and Ndii did not seem happy to see them and started walking faster in an effort to avoid interacting with them. Although the two Ex Orphans caught up with them, they were did not want to keep the quick pace the juniors had adopted and chose to return to their browsing activities.

At today’s mudbath Bada and Aruba sat separately on the walls of the water pool rubbing their bottoms in competition with each other. Mbirikani sat in the center of the wallow and shone in mudbathing games which were being closely watched by Kihari. Ishaq-B was determined to challenge Mbirikani to a mudbath game and ended up exiting the waterhole via a steep wall in an effort to get away from Ndii who was following her every move, preventing her from getting to Mbirikani.
