Voi Unit  January   27, 2018 It was a calm morning as the stockade dependant orphan elephants concentrated on their usual feeding routine at the stockade before following Lentili to the browsing grounds. Soon after the juniors left the stockade compound, Emily’s herd arrived and had a quick drink before returning to the Park.

The orphan herd settled to browse in single file with Kenia focusing on her adopted baby Araba while Ndii spent the whole day browsing side by side with. Dabassa and Layoni encountered the stockade dependant orphan elephants at the browsing grounds. The two lifted their trunks skyward to salute the juniors, but did not join them.

The orphans visited the water hole at noon where they had a brief bath before resuming with their browsing activities. Ndoria enjoyed leading the group back to the stockade in the evening using the fact that she is a tail biter to her advantage, as none of the others wanted to overtake her out of fear of getting their tail bitten.
