Voi Unit  January   4, 2018 The day began with the orphan elephants coming out of their stockade at first light, enjoying their milk and supplements before engaging in socializing games around the stockade compound.

The morning was spent browsing peacefully until it was time to make their way to the baobab waterhole. A big wild bull passed close to the orphans who stopped in their tracks to welcome him into their group. Kenia and Ndii were a bit worried that he would try and get close to their adopted babies Araba and Tahri but the wild bull was only interested in interacting with the older females.

Embu and Bada could see their milk bottles waiting for them and tried to hurry the group along, feeling that more importance should be given to the milk feed than to making friends with the wild bull. At the mud bath the orphans had a lot of fun playing mud bathing games before resuming with the browsing activities around the waterhole.
