Voi Unit  November   5, 2017 The orphans welcomed another dawn as they exited the stockade this morning to a clear and sunny day. Kenia, Ndii, Kihari and Naipoki left the stockade as soon as the milk and supplement feeding had ended leading their group to western side of Msinga Hill. Nelion and Mbirikani then led the way to the peak of Msinga where they all settled to browse.

At 10.20am, Ndara, Neptune, Lesanju and Sinya came to the stockades together with Lempaute, Kivuko, Dabassa and Layoni and settled to feed on some Lucerne grass.

All the Ex Orphans were paying close attention to Neptune. Lempaute most wanted to get close to him and was prevented from doing so by Tassia who blocked all access to the baby. Lesanju and Lempaute seemed very happy to be back together after months of being apart. The two were seen enjoying the supplements and drinking water together before leaving the stockade compound to return to the browsing grounds.
