Voi Unit  November   30, 2017 Layoni and Dabassa arrived at the stockades early this morning and after the supplement feeding was over they joined the stockade dependant orphan elephants in some games around the stockade compound. Layoni and Dabassa joined forces to challenge Panda in a wrestling match.

When it was time to head to the browsing fields Panda tried to catch up with Tahri to spend some time with her but was prevented from doing so but the two boys who wanted to engage her in strength testing and pushing games. Araba became a little jealous of the new comer and kept pushing her away. Mudanda and Ndii came to the rescue and kept Tahri close to them. Panda kept trying to get close to Tahri as well so that they could all browse together.

The orphan elephants visited the baobab water hole where Ndii left Araba to her own devices while she enjoyed a mud bath and scratching session with Tahri. The afternoons browsing activities took place at the baobab water hole before ending at the big water hole.
