Voi Unit  January   14, 2018 The morning was good with the orphans exiting their stockades in the morning, downing their milk bottle and settling for some supplement feeding before heading to the browsing grounds. Once in the field they spread out to feed, grabbing as much browse as they could. Kenia stuck with her adopted baby Araba, while Ndii was bumper to bumper with her chosen darling Tahri.

The orphans made their way to the baobab water hole in the afternoon in groups of five. Arruba, who is best friends with Suswa, snuck away from the keepers and managed to join the first group making it a group of 6 that came first for their milk bottles. The orphan elephants then had a drink of clean water from the baobab tree water trough, before plunging into the water for a wonderful mud bath. Mashariki enjoyed a game of sitting on the walls of the waterhole and sliding into the water while Lentili watched. The group then enjoyed a dust bath after which they resumed with their browsing activities in the vicinity of the mudbath.
