Voi Unit  November   26, 2017 The morning started well with the orphans making their way to the browsing grounds following a peaceful milk and the supplement feeding process. They browsed in single file from the southern side of the stockade all the way to the northern side where they visited the baobab water hole.

Naipoki and Embu came with the first group of the milk feeding orphan elephants at noon and sneaked behind the keeper’s who were busy feeding Rorogoi, Lentili, Mashariki, Bada and Nelion to steal the other orphans milk bottles from the stockade pickup. The two grabbed and pulled the milk bottles out of the crates emptying the milk into their mouths. A keeper who was feeding Nelion saw what was happening and managed to reclaim the two now half empty milk bottles from Naipoki and Embu. Kenia and Ndii, the two older females in the orphan herd were the ones to be fed those milk bottles.
