Voi Unit  November   2, 2017 This morning, while the orphans were out in the browsing fields, it started to drizzle covering the dry earth with rain drops. Arruba lay down on the soil which was quite warm and started to dose off. Rorogoi, Mbirikani, Suswa and Ndoria became worried that Arruba may be feeling ill and went to check on her.

In the afternoon the orphans visited the baobab water hole where they enjoyed their afternoon milk bottle and drink of water but did not partake in a mud bath. They browsed their way to the middle waterhole before slowly making their way back to the safety of the stockades for the night.

This afternoon Luna’s glucose levels dropped and just like Kavu she was placed on a drip. Sadly Kavu died at about 3pm in the afternoon. Most of the orphans that have been brought to the Voi stockades have been victims of drought and have all been in a state of collapse which they have had a hard time recovering from.
