Voi Unit  November   16, 2017 The morning was wonderful with the stockade dependant orphan elephants downing a morning milk bottle before settling to enjoy some range cubes. They were soon joined by Layoni and Dabassa who came running in from the park. The orphans were almost half way done with the range cubes when the two Ex Orphans arrived and started pushing the juniors away from the range cube feeding area. The keepers took charge, bringing any disagreements to an end, allowing them all to enjoy the supplement feeding.

The juniors then headed to the browsing fields leaving the two Ex Orphans drinking water from the stockade water trough while they settled to browse on the Northern side of the stockade.

At the mud bath Ndii went and sat on the walls of the water pool and challenged Embu in some rolling in the mud games. Kihari enjoyed a scratching session while Kenia had a nap on the red earth piles that had been brought in for the orphans.
