Voi Unit  October   24, 2017 The morning was cloudy and some light rain fell, registering four millimeters of water. The orphans played happily around the stockade compound before heading to the browsing grounds. On arriving at the foot of Msinga Hill, Kenia and Ndii found themselves at a cross roads when Ndii wanted to lead the orphan herd towards the northern side of the hill, whereas Kenia was heading towards the southern side. Lentili and Naipoki resolved the by taking control and leading the entire group to the western side of the hill.

Layoni and Dabassa arrived at the stockade at 10am followed closely by Kivuko and Lempaute who arrived five minutes later. After supplement feeding for more than an hour, Lempaute explored the stockade compound, making her way to the taming stockades where she greeted Sola, Kavu and Tahri. The three orphans rumbled in response after which Lempaute made her way to the lower stockade where she met the new orphan baby buffalo (Tukai), before leading the rest of her group to the browsing grounds.
