Voi Unit  January   8, 2018 It was a cold morning with very light rain sprinkles welcoming the orphans as they exited their night quarters. They engaged in socializing games with Kihari, Suswa, Nelion, and Arruba lying down in an attempt to draw some warmth from the soil before joining others who were headed towards the browsing grounds.

The orphans browsed in single file before visiting the baobab water hole where they enjoyed an afternoon milk bottle before making their way to the northern side of Msinga Hill. While the orphan elephants were busy browsing, Tawi, the male Ex Orphan eland that had gone wild more than a month ago, came together with about ten wild zebra to join the orphans. Tawi came to greet the elephants while the zebra herd watched him and waited patiently for him to rejoin them so that they could continue on their way.
