Voi Unit  January   23, 2018 The morning began as usual with the stockade dependant orphan elephants emptying a delicious morning milk bottle in a rush, then assembling for some supplement feeding. They had some brief socializing and chasing games around the stockade compound before heading to the browsing grounds under the leadership of Kihari.

Upon arriving at the northern side of the stockade, Layoni and Kivuko, who were browsing half way up Msinga Hill, attempted to come down to join the juniors, who had unfortunately already moved further afield by the time they came down.

The orphans had a peaceful session on the far northern side of Msinga Hill, browsing their way to the western side, before coming down in groups of five for their afternoon milk bottle at the baobab water hole. It was cold and cloudy with the orphan elephants having a partial mud bath before enjoying soil dusting games on the red earth piles. Tundani had fun chasing two warthogs away from the waterhole, keeping them away until the orphans left at which point the warthogs were able to enjoy a drink of water in peace and quiet.
