4/22/2016 - The morning is here and the orphan elephants once again welcomed the day with happy games in the stockade compound before taking off to the browsing grounds. The vegetation is still wet from the rain and the orphans enjoyed browsing on the lush grass.
Today they never visited the water hole and their milk was again taken to them on the northern side of the stockade where they were browsing.
Lesanju’s herd that has become more and more independent was sighted from far coming to drink in the Voi Wildlife Lodge water hole. They were sighted with a wild elephant bull in their company but it could be captured on camera due to how far they were away.
On the way to the stockade in the evening, Rorogoi was leading with Mbirikani attempting to overtake her but with little success. Ishaq B forced her way to the front to convince Nelion not to move ahead with his plans to climb the hill to browse as it was already time to head back to the stockades. Nelion respected her followed the others towards the stockade.
Kore and Tawi the orphan baby eland, together with Salla the orphan Oryx, Jamuhuri the buffalo and Ngulia their adopted mother orphan zebra are all growing up fast and in good health. Ngulia has a special love for the orphan baby buffalo Jamuhuri, and has become very protective and jealous over him; so much that she charges anybody approaching the baby buffalo in her presence.
