Voi Unit  January   6, 2018 The morning was full of games around the stockade compound following the orphans milk and supplement feeding. They played until Kenia and Ndii decided to lead the group out followed first by Araba and Tahri with the rest of the orphans falling in line.

On arrival at the browsing grounds, seven year old Kihari split from the main group taking five year olds Mashariki, Bada, Mudanda, Lentili, Rorogoi and her age mate Naipoki with her. The smaller satellite group browsed together for about 20 minutes before rejoining the rest.

After the afternoon mud bath, Ndii went and drew some water that she found in a shallow hole in a tree trunk. The keepers figured that she was testing the water to see if it was sweeter or different in any way to what she had just drunk from the water trough.

The afternoon was spent browsing peacefully until it was time to return home with Ndoria and Arruba leading the group back to the safety of the stockades.
