Voi Unit  November   22, 2017 It was a perfect beginning to the day with Layoni and Dabassa joining the stockade dependant orphan elephants for some range cube feeding before following them to the browsing grounds. Once out in the park the two Ex Orphans made their way towards the water pipe line. The orphans browsed in single file until it was time to visit the baobab water hole.

The weather was fairly cold today, with Ndii and Araba, being the only ones to really enjoy the mud bath while Kenia stood by watching them, preferring to be a spectator than a wallower as the water was cold. Ndii and Araba had a lovely time wallowing in the water while the others waited for them to finish so that they could resume their browsing activities. On coming out of the water, Ndii pulled up the root of an acacia tree and feasted on it while Kenia went to investigate a hole in a tree trunk. On finding that there was water in the hole she decided to taste it. The afternoons browsing activities took place close to the waterhole.
