Voi Unit  November   18, 2017 This morning Kenia, Kihari, Ndii and Naipoki consolidated the stockade dependant orphan elephant group and headed to the browsing fields as soon as they saw Layoni and Dabassa making their way to the stockades. The two Ex Orphans came running up to try and join the juniors for some supplement feeding. As the juniors had eaten all the supplements they waited to be given some by the keepers and remained in the compound feeding and drinking before returning to the park.

After an afternoon milk bottle, Araba went and lay on Ndii's stomach during the mud bathing games while Kenia watched them. Ndii has slowly been gaining Araba’s love and trust and the youngster often enjoys keeping company with Ndii who in the end may end up being Araba’s new adopted mother over Kenia.

Late in the afternoon the orphans joined a wild elephant herd that came to browse close to them. Mashariki and Naipoki were busy following a small wild elephant calf which made her older sister feel uncomfortable and had her charging at the two orphans to get them to keep their distance.
