Voi Unit  November   19, 2017 It was morning full of blessings as it rained quite heavily during the night and was still raining as the orphan elephants exited their stockades for the morning milk bottle. They did not hang around the stockade compound this morning and were quick to leave for the browsing grounds under the leadership of Arruba, Suswa and Lentili.

The orphans browsed in single file, enjoying the moist grass and vegetation that was shooting up following the recent light rain showers. After browsing for more than three hours, Panda, Ndii and Ajali led the others onto Msinga Hill. As they were climbing the three noticed that the rocks were wet and steep and could be dangerous for the group. They abandoned their uphill climb and remained at the base of the hill. The orphans had their midday milk bottle at the northern foot of Msinga Hill and did not visit the waterhole as they had managed to quench their thirst at all of the fresh rain water puddles.
