Voi Unit  November   15, 2017 The morning was good with the orphan elephants exiting their stockades amid light rain showers.
Lempaute and Kivuko have joined up with Lesanju, Ndara and Emily's herds leaving the two boys, Dabassa and Layoni, behind.

The orphans browsed half way up the western side of Msinga Hill, under the leadership of Bada and Mbirikani, with the sun penetrating the thick clouds bringing some warmth to the area. The group made their way to the mud bath at noon, for their milk bottle, arriving in groups of four. They then had a lot of fun playing mud bathing games, with Arruba engaging Naipoki in a tough mud bathing game.

Nelion did not partake of the mud bathing games choosing to instead enjoy a scratching session against the baobab tree where he seemed so relaxed that he fell into a light slumber, waking only when Ndii came to join him for a scratch. Mudanda had a wonderful rolling in the dust game before the group headed out for the afternoons browsing session.
