Voi Unit  November   23, 2017 It was a lovely morning as the orphans exited their stockade, drank their milk bottles, enjoyed their supplements and left for the browsing grounds. On arriving at the foot of Msinga Hill, Suswa enjoyed a scratching session against a big rock builder before joining the rest on the days browsing journey.

Dabassa and Layoni who arrived at the stockade early this morning joined the juniors in their browsing activities. Layoni was seen constantly following Panda wanting to engage her in a wrestling match, but Panda was too busy concentrating on eating as much vegetation as she could and did not show any interest in Layoni and his advances.

A few minutes before heading to the baobab water hole in the afternoon, Lentili, who was leading the rest of the orphan elephant herd, took them close to some wild zebras and the orphan elephants had a peaceful time browsing with them. They later left the zebra herd behind and proceeded to the waterhole in groups of five where they all enjoyed their milk feed and an afternoon mud bath.
