Voi Unit  November   3, 2017 It was a nice beginning to the day with the stockade dependant orphan elephants moving half way up the eastern side of Msinga Hill for the mornings browsing session. After four hours spent browsing peacefully a wild herd of elephants stopped to feed at the foot of Msinga Hill, directly below the orphan elephants

Arruba, Suswa, Ishaq-B and Ajali started coming down the hill in an effort to join the wild herd that had a tiny calf. Kenia, Ndii, Naipoki and Kihari thought decided that instead of joining the wild herd they preferred to lead the group to the baobab waterhole arriving there at 11am, an hour earlier than usual.

Luna who managed to get back to her feet at about 2am last night collapsed again at 6pm and despite our best efforts and being placed on drips sadly died at 7:20 am.
