Voi Unit  November   11, 2017 Today, Emily, Eve, Emma, Edie, Eden, Sweet Sally, Safi, Lolokwe, Siria, Taveta, Mweya and two wild elephant bulls came and stood outside the park, behind the elephant grid at the park entrance. The group had had missed the standard gauge railway corridor and had followed the Ngutuni fence line to the park entrance where they awaited assistance to re enter the park. A section of fence was opened up for them and they made their way straight to the Voi stockade.
The group had walked from the sisal estate sanctuary, several miles away where they had been seen about two weeks ago, to the park entrance unharmed. Emma, Eden and Safi enjoyed a game of chasing one another around the stockade compound.

Lesanju, who had arrived at the stockade in the morning, was seen to be shying away from Emily’s herd. She then went to greet Eden at which point Taveta engaged her in a wrestling match. Lesanju left the stockade together with Emily’s herd later that day.

In the evening, at 6.40pm, a report of an orphan male elephant calf aged about three years old was reported by the Kenya wildlife Service gate attendants. The gate staff had received a message from a tour driver who found the orphan baby stuck in a ditch and in a state of collapse. It is believed that the orphan elephant had been there the whole night and day. The calf was rescued and following drips that were administered during the course of the night, it was able to get back to its feet.
