Voi Unit  January   11, 2018 This morning the orphan elephants enjoyed playing hide and seek games coupled with soil dusting games on the red earth piles at the stockade compound. Nelion and Bada took turns scratching against the rock boulders before joining the rest of the orphan elephants as they headed towards the browsing grounds. Nelion and Bada wanted to stay on the eastern side of Msinga Hill for the morning browsing session but ended up following the rest of the orphan herd who were quickly making their way to the Northern side of Msinga Hill.

Today Ajali, who does not take any milk, was the first one to get to the milk feeding area and stood behind Nguvu and waited for his friend to finish his milk bottles so that the two of them could go to the baobab waterhole. The two together with Suswa, Arruba, Naipoki and Lentili plunged into the water, following a drink from the water trough, and were soon joined by the rest of the orphan group.
