Voi Unit  November   24, 2017 It was a wonderful beginning to the day with the stockade dependant orphan elephants welcoming Dabassa and Layoni for some range cubes feeding before leaving the two at the stockade compound when they left for the browsing grounds. At the dairy cubes feeding area, Embu had some very close feeding contact with Dabassa, while the rest of the juniors kept a respectful distance from the two Ex Orphans.

While out in the browsing fields Ndii picked up a dry stick and put it in her mouth using it to prod Panda and Nguvu to get them to move away from her loved one Araba. Panda and Nguvu did not really have any interest in getting in a fight with Ndii and were happy to move away.

The orphans went to the milk feeding area in groups of five where they downed an afternoon milk bottle before entering the mud bath where they had lovely time wallowing and playing mud bath games. The orphans spent the afternoon browsing on the Western foot of Msinga Hill where they enjoyed feeding on fresh green grass.
