Voi Unit  November   25, 2017 Once the mornings stockade activities were over the orphans headed to the park leaving Dabassa and Layoni enjoying the remains of the sweet dairy cubes from the cement feeding trough. Once out in the fields the orphans scattered and enjoyed browsing on the green grass shooting up after the last rain storm.

It was a very hot day and the orphans sought shelter under a short but green acacia tree. Bada and Rorogoi, who were leading the group, were scared off by the blowing sound of a big monitor lizard that was in the top of that tree. The monitor lizard was simply afraid of all the orphans and wanted to warn them that he was there. Nevertheless the orphans moved away from the tree and made their way to the baobab waterhole where they had a wonderful mud bath.

Embu, using her tusks, poked at the red earth piles to loosen them up so that she could have a dustbath, as they had hardened following the recent rains. The rest of the days browsing activities took place close to the waterhole with Mudanda and Lentili enjoying a lead of the orphan herd to the stockades in the evening.
