Voi Unit  January   18, 2018 The morning was cloudy and cold as the stockade dependant orphan elephants came out of the stockades and downed a morning milk bottle. Ndoria became very naughty, ambushing Suswa, who was busy feeding on some lucerne grass pellets, giving her a very tough push which caught Suswa unaware and had her shout for help. Ndoria ran away from the crime scene, pretending she was very innocent and unaware of what had happened to Suswa. The keeper’s intervened and comforted Suswa so that she felt comfortable enough to rejoin the group.

The orphans visited the baobab waterhole in the afternoon, with Bada and Tundani becoming the most amazing bathers of the day as they managed to evict the rest of the orphan elephant herd from the water hole, by running in and out and kicking the water with both their front and rear feet, sending mud into the eyes of the rest of the group. Araba who was watching their games also moved away and joined the rest of the group who were browsing around the waterhole.
