12/27/2016 - The morning was bright as the orphan elephants left the stockade in a nearly perfect straight line following behind Kihari and Lentili towards the browsing grounds.
Emily and Lesanju’s herd arrived at the stockade compound two hours after the babies had left. They had a drink from the stockade water trough before playing some games in the compound.
A teenage wild elephant bull who was present among the Ex Orphan group climbed on Mweya and tried to mate with her. He was unsuccessful in doing so as Mweya was having none of his antics and pushed him away. Meanwhile, another big wild elephant bull was guarding sleeping Safi with his mother Sweet Sally standing close by.
Rombo enjoyed a scratch of his neck against a rock boulder close to the stockade water trough.
They then left the stockade for the field but didn’t link up with the stockade dependant orphan elephants.
