12/18/2016 - It was a beautiful beginning of the day with the stockade dependant orphans leaving the stockade for the field as soon as they had finished their morning stockade routine. The orphans browsed their way onto the northern side of the stockade which had some tall green grass.
After a three hour browsing session, Thoma, Thor, and Seraa in company of the whole of Emily’s herd joined them for a while. The Ex Orphan herd had come with two wild elephant bulls. It is suspected that Laikipia, Lolokwe and Irima, who were the only ones missing, had been chased away from the group by the wild bulls.
All the wild born babies Emma, Eden, Safi, Inca and Thor were all very well and happy and they enjoyed playing with the stockade dependant orphans. Emma had some wonderful pushing games with Mudanda and Bada, with Rorogoi later coming in to join them. Emma then engaged Kenia in some pushing games which made Araba a little jealous and she gave her a side bump. Lentili had a soft spot for Thor and she stuck close to him while they browsed. One of the wild bulls has been with Emily’s herd for a while and today was enjoying following the junior’s games closely.
As the older orphans left towards the Voi river circuit, Nguvu placed himself in the middle of the Ex Orphan herd and left with them. Reinforcements were called from the stockade to get Nguvu back again as he is still milk dependent and needs to be with the orphan herd.
