7/17/2016 - It was a nice beginning of the day with Kenia and Lentili leading the other orphan elephants towards the browsing grounds after all the milk and supplement feeding was over.
Taveta later arrived alone drinking from the stockade water trough and comfortably moving towards the northern side of the stockade joining the stockade dependant orphans who were with the Kenia and Panda herds.
The browsing day was perfect with Embu taking the lead of the first three orphans for milk feeding. These were Bada, Arruba and Tundani. Embu then took another step forward leading the three straight towards the middle water hole before waiting for the other orphans behind them to finish their afternoon milk bottle.
When all the orphans arrived at the water they all enjoyed it a lot in the warm weather with Taveta moving close and admiring Rorogoi’s games.
Bada and Kihari also had a wonderful bathing time away from the other orphans, before leaving Ndoria all alone in the water.
