Voi Unit  November   28, 2017 It was a nice beginning of the day with the stockade dependant orphan elephants playing happily around the stockade compound leaving when Dabassa and Layoni made their grand entry into the compound.

The orphans went half way up the eastern side of Msinga Hill where they settled for the mornings browsing activities. When it was time for the mud bath and afternoon milk feed the orphans descended and had a lovely time wallowing in the water following the milk and dairy cube feeding. Mbirikani and Ishaq-B ran in and out of water in what was perceived to be some kind of competition. Ajali seemed to like their game and joined in, even though he is not usually a fan of the water.

After a wonderful noon mud bath, Mbirikani and Tundani went for a scratching session against a big tree trunk while Kenia and Arruba waited to have a turn when they were done. The rest of the browsing day was spent browsing peacefully with Bada and Mudanda taking the lead of the orphan herd in the evening when it was time to return to the stockades.
