Voi Unit  January   31, 2018 The orphan elephants concentrated on their usual milk and supplement feeding this morning before enjoying a brief playing session at the stockade compound after which they headed to the browsing fields. Kihari and Kenia brought up the rear of the group, making sure that all the orphan elephants were happy and safe and keeping an eye on Araba who was lagging behind, wanting attention from the two older girls.

It has become apparent that Panda has a soft spot for Tahri and the two managed to have some time browsing together today. Ndii was happy to let Panda enjoy some time with Tahri but made sure that it was not for too long.

The orphans visited the baobab tree waterhole at noon and were temporarily scared off by a flock of birds having a drink at the main waterhole. The birds made quite a noise as they flew, casting a shadow over the orphans. Once the birds had left the orphan herd had a lovely time playing in the mud bath. The afternoon was spent browsing around the waterhole.
