Voi Unit  January   24, 2018 The morning started with the stockade dependant orphan elephants enjoying their morning milk bottle after which they engaged in supplement feeding, before teaming up in groups for some socializing games. The game of chase around the compound soon became the favourite and continued until Layoni and Dabassa arrived, at which point Kenia, Ndii, Naipoki and Kihari led their group out to the park.

The orphan elephant herd visited the water hole in the afternoon, but as it was cold they were reluctant to have a mud bath. Ndii stretched out her trunk to touch Lentili, seemingly trying to take the lead and get the group into the water. Lentili had no interest in doing so and as such the orphans returned to the browsing fields where they remained until it was time to return to the stockades for the night.
