Voi Unit  November   13, 2017 This morning the stockade dependant orphan elephants rushed out of their stockades eager for their milk bottle after which they enjoyed feeding on supplements before leaving for the browsing grounds. Embu, Bada and Mudanda went high up Msinga Hill to browse. Mudanda and Bada came down for their afternoon milk bottle, while Embu remained at the top browsing away.

At 7.30 in the morning another Ex Orphan herd that had missed the standard gauge railway corridor followed the same path as Emily’s herd and arrived at the Voi gate where they waited for assistance to get back into the park. The group consisted of Icholta and her baby Inca, Thoma and her calf Thor, Seraa, Wasessa, Rombo and Mzima. Once back in the park they went straight to the stockades where they had a quick drink before heading off again.

In the evening, the male orphan eland Tawi took Kore and Ngulia to the wild. Efforts were made to get the three to return back to the stockade which Kore and Ngulia did. Tawi, however, ran off and remained in the park to live a wild life.
