Voi Unit  January   2, 2018 The morning was cold as the orphans exited their stockades for their morning milk bottle before proceeding for some supplement feeding. They then engaged in some soil dusting games before following Kihari and Naipoki to the browsing fields. The orphans browsed on the eastern and northern sides of the stockade with the midday milk bottles being taken to them as they did not seem interested in visiting the waterhole.

In the evening Ndii and Kenia led the group to the waterhole where they had a drink of water from the water trough at the baobab mud bath before enjoying some mud bathing games. Ishaq-B came out of the water and enjoyed a dust bath as she tried to get Mudanda to join her. Once they had had their fill of fun they headed to the stockades for the night.
