Voi Unit  January   29, 2018 The orphan elephants stuck to their usual milk and supplement feeding before heading to the browsing grounds. Araba went and rubbed her bottom on a rock close to the stockade water trough, forcing Kenia to wait until she was through and had rejoined the rest of the group so that they could head to the park.

The weather was fairly cold today and as such the orphans did not want to visit the waterhole and had their milk delivered to them at the eastern side of the stockade browsing grounds. Mudanda and Rorogoi who were following Lentili to the water hole without the others, had to stop and respect the wishes of the rest of the group who did not want to visit the mud bath. Ajali remained neutral and spent some time browsing away from the two groups until Panda managed to get the entire herd to follow her to the water hole. Mbirikani got left behind and had to run to catch up. She then remained in the mud bath long after the others had left, joining them in the browsing fields about 10 minutes later.
