Voi Unit  October   30, 2017 This morning the stockade dependant orphan elephants were once again joined by the four Ex Orphans from Lempauteís herd for supplement feeding following their morning milk bottle. Dabassa and Layoni introduced the juniors to a game of playing on the red earth piles, and after Kihari and Kenia led the way to the browsing grounds. The two Ex Orphan boys followed the stockade dependant orphans towards the field but were left on the southern foot of Msinga Hill as the juniors proceeded to the northern side. Lempaute and Kivuko remained around stockade compound for two more hours enjoying the Lucerne grass.

Bada, Nelion and Mbirikani led the juniors halfway up the hill for the mornings browsing activities. Ndii grabbed a stick from Ishaq-Bís mouth wanting to feed on it but as it was dry she quickly dropped it to the ground.

At noon the orphans visited the baobab water hole for their milk and a mudbath after which the afternoon was spent browsing around the area. Mashariki, Mudanda and Arruba enjoyed leading the orphan group back to the stockade in the evening. Lempaute was at the stockade when the juniors arrived and followed them into their night quarters grabbing some grewia branches which she took outside so that she could feast on them.

Nelion and Tundani early morning games
