Voi Unit  October   15, 2017 It was a wonderful beginning to the day with the stockade dependant orphan elephants downing a delicious morning milk bottle. They were then joined by Lempaute and Kivuko for some supplement feeding after which there were socializing games with Panda beginning a wonderful game of rolling around in the red soil pile in the stockade compound while Kivuko approached Tundani for a for a pushing game. Ndii noticed Kivuko's advances towards Tundani and went to push Tundani away preventing the two from playing together.

Kivuko and Lempaute followed the stockade dependant orphan elephants to the browsing grounds, a situation that Kenia, Kihari and Ndii were not very comfortable with as they always worry that the older girls will try and steal the babies away from them. The two Ex Orphans remained with the juniors for a short while before leaving near the Mzima spring-Mombasa water pipeline area.

Nguvu and Ajali enjoyed interacting and browsing with the others making sure to stay as close to them as possible so that they would not be left behind at any time.
