Voi Unit  November   20, 2017 It was a nice beginning to the day with Layoni and Dabassa arriving at the stockade to join the juniors for the supplement feeding session. The two Ex Orphans were then welcomed to join the juniors out in the browsing grounds. Layoni and Dabassa were very well behaved, allowing the stockade dependant orphan elephants to make their browsing choices and take the leadership roles which they shared among the group.

While browsing on the eastern foot of Msinga Hill, a male water buck that was running fast came and stopped behind Mudanda who became quite nervous as she could not run away due to the big rock boulders in front of her. Upon realizing that the animal behind her was a water buck, and not a predator, she calmed down and continued with her browsing activities.

The orphans visited the baobab water hole where they downed their milk bottles then enjoyed feeding on the range cubes that had been given to them. The afternoon was spent browsing around the area.
